This week former University of North Dakota men's hockey player Joe Finley attended the NHL's Washington Capitals development camp. He spent a few minutes with the media, answering questions about his time as a Fighting Sioux, his style of play and his development as a player.

A few highlights from the video:

"The maturity that North Dakota gave me, to understand time management, living on your own, all of those things," Finley said of his growth as a person and player and his decision to stay four years as a Fighting Sioux. "Just growing up over those last four years is probably the biggest aspect."

He also spoke briefly on a notorious incident he was involved in, but "I'm not going to incriminate myself, right? With a couple cameras (filming)," Finley said.

Check out the video below for the full video from the Washington Capitals.
