This is a story about my hockey odyssey and passion for the game. My compelling journey starts on a schoolyard rink in Kitchener, Ontario. Filled with inspiring memories, people, relationships, players and coaches, including chance childhood meetings with Darryl Sittler and Wayne Gretzky. Along the way, young dreams turn to reality as I play my first NHL game at the Joe Louis Arena in Detroit, starting on a line with Dale Hunter and John Druce.
Impassioned coaches I played for like Bryan Murray, Terry Murray, Barry Trotz, and Doug MacLean influenced my love of the sport and outlook on life. This is my truthful hockey experience while suffering silently from mental health issues I didn't understand, growing up in my teen years.
Full of entertaining thoughtful stories, Shattered Ice is a hockey journey - a Canadian hockey journey and my journey!
