While travelling in the off-season Stu learned to surf in Mexico and snowboard in Kelowna – two sports he now loves. The rest of his free time was spent travelling to Montreal to visit his girlfriend Catherine. Being from Regina, Stu has a large group of supporters who can always be found cheering at the games led by his mom.
