About me I have played in the ECHL, AHL, and NHL- most recently with the Detroit Red Wings. I bring to this camp over 7 years of professional hockey experience. It is my belief that there is nothing more fulfilling in life than growth. During my career, it was all about growing as a player and as a person. It is also the reason I am dedicated to providing this opportunity for young players to have fun while building their value as players. I am usually either working on developing drills, reading, or doing some fishing.
