Born in 1991 in Redcliff, Alberta, Canada. Scouted in a mall in Calgary, Canada. After a childhood friend died at the age of 15, Joey had his friend's face tattooed on his chest. He also has a number 11 with hockey sticks on his right shoulder, a tattoo he shares with two of his childhood friends. Plays hockey for fun. Notoriously proud of being Canadian, and often mentions how proud he is of his hometown in interviews.
