    How a Candy Heir Sneaked Into Pro Hockey and Made His Name as a Savage

    CHICAGO The impostor took the ice, his face concealed, and kept his head down. He did all he could to blend in.

    At a closed N.H.L. skate, a tuneup scrimmage during the lockout of 2004, some two dozen players glided about the rink in the training facility of the Chicago Blackhawks. The pros didnt know it, but someone else had crashed their practice.

    His name was Nello Ferrara, and back then, in hockey circles, that did not mean much. Thirteen years ago, Ferrara was still just a wannabe in the sport, a 27-year-old bruiser with but a handful of junior and minor league games on his rsum.

    Glad you all liked it. Thought it was pretty impressive that he gave up on the family fortune to play hockey in the minors and acting as his own agent was priceless.
