"The point is, and I learned this a long time ago before I could let other things into my life.to have the opportunity and the chance to play hockey, anywhere at anytime meant the world to me. To be playing the game with my friends on the ice, in a parking lot or in someone's backyard or basement whether it was in the dead of winter or on a warm summer's night, it made me feel alive and it gave me the idea that I could do anything if I put my my mind to it and worked hard enough. It nourished my soul and fed my brain. I am a hockey player for life." Excerpt from Hockey Player For Life
