ECA: How many times a week do you play?
KL: I play 5 times a week and usually 1 or 2 lessons on top of that.
ECA: What are your strengths?
KL: My strengths are I am a very technical goalie and have great positioning, I also have quick feet.

KL: I love the Joker and left the rest to Steve, he had all the talent and inspiration for the mask.
ECA: Do you have any game superstitions?

ECA: Any advice to other goalies out there?
KL: I have no advice I leave that to the coaches who know much more than I.
ECA: Anything else you'd like to add?
KL: I would like to say thank you so much for my mask it is "PHENOMINOL" and worth the wait!!!!!!!
