The Kyle File

In order to bring you a complete picture of the season and the events surrounding the New York Islanders, our coverage of Kyle sometimes suffers. To correct this trend, we recently caught up with this website's namesake in order to bring you some information that you might not know about the emerging star. In a perfect world, this would have been 21 questions (for #21) instead of twenty. Nevertheless we present Kyle Okposo in his own words:


Q: Let's begin. Your favorite team or teams in another sport?

Kyle: The Vikings and Twins.

Q: Your favorite junk food, if you have one?

Kyle: Pizza.

Q: We know that you're a gamer...you like your video games. What are you playing right now?

Kyle: Tiger Woods (PGA Tour).

Q: That leads right into the next question. The best round of golf you've ever played was what score?

Kyle: 73. On several different courses in Minnesota.

Q: What kind of music are you listening to right now?

Kyle: Rap. Eminem's new stuff, Lil Wayne. I like some R&B too. Dr. Dre has some good stuff out.

Kyle: I had two beers in my room and then I got ready for the game the next day.

Q: Is there any significance to wearing the #21 uniform?

Kyle: No...well I loved (Peter) Forsberg growing up.

Q: You've mentioned that in the past. How about your dream car?

Kyle: When I was growing up it was a Range Rover.

Q: Please name a place you've always wanted to visit, but never had the chance to.

Kyle: Joe Sakic.

Q: If not for hockey what profession would you be doing? Or one you'd like to get into after your hockey career?

Q: And one sentence to describe Kyle the person?
