“I love playing and coaching the game of hockey. It has been my life for the past 20 years. My passion, plain and simple, is hockey. I was a creative skilled goal scorer in my playing days and I love teaching that part of the game. As a coach I bring the many skills I have obtained from my hockey career. Hockey is a game of skill and mind. Learning the skills is one thing but to be able to think how and when to use these skills in different game situations is what makes you a better player” - Josh
