The launch of your new website reminded me that I have neglected to write to thank you for the camp experience my squirt son received at the Defense Battle Camp in Chicago this past July. The overall experience, your staff and the defense skills were fantastic.
More importantly, I wanted to write and thank you for sharing your passion for the game and your “not so easy” road to the NHL with the kids. Your stories really resonated with my son. In fact, he broke his foot two weeks before tryouts this fall and did not make the team he was working toward/wishing for and it was a huge blow to him. Nick has talked a lot about your stories and been able to draw from your journey and gain strength from it. That right there goes way beyond hockey. It is a life lesson. Thank you for doing what you do. Looking forward to next summer.
