Here is my interview with Ryland Landon:

Q: First off how have you been doing during quarantine, and what do you do to keep busy?

A: Quarantines’ obviously been tough for everyone, I’ve been doing good, keeping up with school. I’ve been focusing a lot on my nutrition and trying to maintain my fitness as best as possible. I play the guitar and do other things to try and pass the time, very important to stay inside and social distance as well, so plenty of that.


Q: Nice that you play the guitar, do you have any music preference?

A: Country, for sure.


Q: Sounds good, forgive me for not knowing too much about leagues in the Ottawa area, where do you plan on playing next year?

A: Not too sure yet with everything going on with the virus it’s hard, the hockey world is sort of at a stop. I’m going to give it my best shot at training camp turn some heads for sure, and I will definitely be figuring out next season soon.


Q: Wrapping up, which NHL team do you cheer for and who is your favourite player?

A: I’m a hometown guy, I cheer for the Sens all the way, when they made the cup run in 2017 and lost to the Pens in the conference finals, I couldn’t take my eyes off the screen, and my favourite player is definitely Thomas Chabot.


Q: Last question, which NHL player do you think your style of play is most similar to?

A: I remember watching Marc Methot when he was in Ottawa and how defensively sound he was, In a way, I feel like my defensive game translates to his, and also McAvoy the way he moved the puck and can turn the play up ice is similar to me.
