PERSONAL BIOHockey has had a great impact on my life; It taught me about teamwork and being on a high performing team. It taught me the discipline of listening to the coach and teammates and also sticking to the program. Commitment and sacrifice what needed to be done by my family and myself to give me a chance to make the NHL and play for many years. Lastly, I experienced success and failure of attaining short and long term goals or falling short of them. My favorite memory playing in the NHL, was winning the Stanley cup in 2014 when I play for the LA Kings. I enjoy playing charity hockey games, golf tournaments, poker and my favorite helping make brown bag lunches for school kids in Calgary. My wife Kristina and I have two boys; Wyatt (11) and Shane (8). When I am not playing hockey or involved in the community I like to go sledding in the mountains , water skiing, fishing, road cycling and I am also an emergency back-up loader operator. I am busy with helping out with family activities, doing some public speaking engagements and play beer-league hockey. When I retired, I started an energy services company called Blueline Oilfield Rentals in 2008. We are involved in agriculture in Saskatchewan and I still love operating a combine.
