As the owner of CHE I was joined by our celeb staff Gilles Gilbert, former NHL All Star goalie, and Adam Collins, former European star player, in Canada’s Capital City and I enjoyed the weekend as much as the participants. The U of Ottawa double rink ice was amazing, the NHL game between the Sens and Tampa Bay was a hit and the tournament games and divisions were close. The first teams to arrive were the boys from Uxbridge and Sudbury who rolled into Ottawa in their own buses ready to rock! And they ROCKED!
The Sudbury team had a very inspirational player who was a former pro and Sudbury Wolve. This former Sudbury Wolves captain had 87 points in the 1995-96 season and broke his leg in 2008 as a professional. 3 years later he had to make the decision to amputate or live in pain. Check his story here.
Way to go Sean it was a pleasure meeting you.
