Expertise

I have been playing amateur hockey for 48 years... from Youth hockey up to Jr. "B", and now still play in adult leagues. I have coached youth hockey for 10+ years and have been an "active student" of all aspects of learning, playing and coaching hockey for past 8 years. I offer not only some X`s & O`s about hockey but also some experience in practical, philosophical, spiritual and motivational aspects of playing and learning the game. My son is now 26 - just done with his carreer through College. He went through all the hurdles to get to Juniors and played there for 3 years, then College for 4. I am happy to share our experience during that journey.

Experience in the area

Now in my 49th year involved with this awesome ever evolving sport! I am USA Hockey Certified as Intermediate Level Coach. I have a BA degree in Psychology with minor in business (Brock University), as well as a LLB (law degree) from Ottawa University. I have owned and operated my family business for 30+ years now. I have co-parented 3 great kids!

Education/Credentials

Social Studies Diploma CEGEP - Marianopolis College, Montreal Quebec BA - Psychology, Minor in Business - Brock University Law Degree - Ottawa University

What do you like about this subject?

Hockey is a great game! Really the only sport that brings players together for usually no less than 6 months ... giving everyone ample opportunity to get to know each other and build great friendships.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

I am working on writing a book that will answer all types of questions that will enhance the enjoyment of playing this exciting sport.

At a rec level - this could work to allow for more kids to play.  Space might be a challenge - especially for ice hockey.    At a pro level it's not likely to happen.  All the history and records / stats

Hello Alan...    I don't have much experience with skate adjustments, etc.  I have had issues with my Sciatic... in fact leading to a herniated disk at L5-C1 --  I had to do the Micro Lumbar disketcomy

2015-10-03 hockey game records:

Not stupid --  it's a very good one....    Some leagues will do stats differently ...    So if there was no actual TIE - which normally that would be the number to represent that -- it could then be either

2014-10-20 getting to the next level:

Hello Luke ...  sorry for slow reply...  I was out of town and did not have access to internet like I thought I would.    While you are definitely going to have a harder time at getting recognized or chosen

Hello Prashant...     Unfortunately my experience is pretty much all from ICE HOCKEY --  while I have played some field hockey for recreation at hockey schools - we pretty much adopted ICE HOCKEY rules
