Ryan: What is your favorite and least favorite arena (outside of your own) to play in and why?

Gabe Guentzel: My favorite rink would have to be Lincoln, the atmosphere in that rink is incredible, it's always loud in that rink and their fans are always into the game. My least favorite rink would have to be Ohio, they don't get many fans and there is no energy in their rink.

Ryan: Describe your USHL experience so far.

GG: My USHL experience has been great, it's a great league with a lot of exposure for the players. There are so many good players in this league, that you're gonna better with every game.

Ryan: Describe the transition from the NAHL to the USHL.

GG: The transition from the NAHL to the USHL was tough at first. In the USHL, there is a lot more depth on every team, every guy in the lineup has a lot of skill and are good players, as in the NAHL teams have two good lines and then it drops off.

Ryan: What is your favorite thing about Sioux Falls?

GG: My favorite thing about Sioux Falls would have to be the selection of good restaurants, there a lot of great places to grab a good meal.

Ryan: What are some of your hobbies outside of hockey?

GG: I like to golf, fish, go bowling, and waterski.
