Phantoms Coach Anthony Noreen: "A big part of it is he goes out and he's willing to get to the areas where you might have to take a stick, you might have to take a punch in the face, you might have to take a body, but if you get to that area, you're more likely to score a goal.
JJ has a knack for scoring at every level he’s ever been at.”
