Stanley Cup Champion, NHL Veteran Forward
Hey Michael. Yeah, my single best advice I got was from my dad. Once I was a freshman in high school, I was playing hockey in the freshman team and I never played. I saw it in the bench whole time, all year, every game might get one shift there in there in its socked, I hate it Amendment the end of the season. I'm M by walked out of the dress. My have my bag old much older I was bummed out and the coach was standing there. My father come around the corner and bumped right into him, hit him with the shoulder said, hey, I'll come my kid can't play and you know, of course, I was embarrassed, but and I went out and I got the car, we're driving home and he, you know, I was bummed on. He says, what's going on? I said, honestly, I think they're quitting hockey, I hate it, I hate sitting on the bench. I want to play and my father told me he said, listen, here's the deal, you can quit. If you want to Quit. Go, right ahead. But he said, I'll tell you one thing. You quit that will haunt you for the rest of your life. It will haunt you. Now, you can quit or in getting the gym, you can start working harder, you know, doing the things that are going to help you become a better player. Go down the, you know, practice you shot down the school yard. Like I did. Yeah. He put it on me and you know what? I took that advice. Vice. I didn't quit and I didn't quit in any areas in my life because of, that advice, I didn't want to be hunted for the rest of my life. Hope that answers your question.
