Here is an interview he did today, broadcast on Habs TV. He explained why he went to the Ontario League in order to try and get an NCAA scholarship.
Sergio Momesso was the ideal player for any team. He could score and never shied away from dropping his gloves. Stefano did not record a high amount of penalty minutes.
