James Malm is a 17-year-old forward in his first full season with the Vancouver Giants.>
In 60 WHL games this season, the five-foot-nine, 180-pound centre sits second on the team with 17 goals and 60 points.
Malm was born in North Delta but moved to Langley a few years ago.
He spent a few minutes with Times sports reporter Gary Ahuja to answer some questions about who he is on and off the ice.

Biggest name from your minor hockey association: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins.
Last concert you attended: I like music, but have surprisingly never been to a concert.
Pump-up song: Something by Kendrick Lamar.
Pre-game ritual: Doing everything up from right to left.
Pre-game meal: Chicken and pasta.

If you didn’t play hockey, what sport you would play: Baseball. My dad and my brothers grew up playing baseball and my dad was a coach.
If you couldn’t play hockey, what would you do: Something where you could be part of a team, like a firefighter or police officer or something like that.
