When I was a kid, I used to walk around my house with my skates on all the time. We had a rink in our yard and by the time I was three years old I was out there with my dad.

He coached my brother and I most of the way through minor hockey and was all about talking hockey with us. We definitely had the car talks and I remember sitting around the kitchen table and Id be doing my math homework and hockey would come up and hed be telling me about this and that. But he wouldnt force it on me, it was always me asking him questions because I trusted him and whatever he told me Id apply and it seemed to work.
