NHL Goaltender - 3 x Stanley Cup Champion
Hey. Favorite moment in hockey. Well, that's clearly very simple for me. I was I was on the ice in 1984 as a clock countdown was on and the Edmonton. Oilers were defeating the New York Islanders to win their first-ever Stanley Cup Championship. And those moments at the end of the game, a couple of saves the energy in the building was just unmatched. I've never heard of building, louder than that and the team, the energy from the team. The vibe, the the Mojo that the team had at that point. Finally arriving, at their first Stanley, Cup champion was unequaled and I shared in it. Unfortunately, my partner was injured and that opened the door for me to be able to finish that series and played the last two and a half games of that series in order to win and those moments a few saves in the third period. Like I said a couple of moments of Doubt until an empty-net goal was scored and that really clinched a Taurus and then just receiving the team and having Being that big mass of humanity and huddle at the net with all the guys, they're so happy. I mean, you know, this is in terms of a year that's a 10 or 11 month commitment to that championship and and the culmination of winning it, you know, the emotions just roll and certainly a highlight of my career.

My favorite hockey moment was probably a side from winning the 2018 Olympics, I would say winning the national championship, but this got some Badgers back in 2011. It was, it was awesome. It's a really hard thing to do. I think it's underrated how hard it is to win a National Championship, but with the group that we had and playing for the Wisconsin Badgers, a dream that I had set out to do when I was a young kid, is an incredible moment and super fun to win with that team. Made a blast.

My favorite hockey moment that I remember the most is, when I was growing up in Toronto, we've got a hockey games. At the Old Maple Leaf Gardens and we would sit in the upper sessions. They were the greens of the time of the mezzanine seats and in the lower section Maple Leaf Gardens. The time, the lower seats were the goals and I asked my dad once I said, why is it that who sits in the Gold section? And my dad said, well, those are, were people said that can afford them, more expensive tickets. Unfortunately, we're not going to be sitting in the goals, but we were sitting in the mezzanine seats, but it was great to be at hockey, answer me with Gardens. And when I got to the NHL, my dad passed away. When I was 15 and our first game at Maple, Leaf Gardens. I handle the tickets for the team. That was one of my duties on players had requests for tickets. I would go to the ticket office, I actually bought a gold ticket and left it in my dad's name at will call. And I mentioned the one of the actors that I knew, I said, please whatever you do, make sure no one's That's it. I've already paid for it and if the person comes and get the ticket great, if not, just make sure no one else sits in that seat after the game, the Esther who I knew came up to me and said, you know, we watch that seat for you for the whole game and there's no one came to pick up the ticket. There's no one sat in the seat and I said, well, I didn't tell him what I had done or the reason I done it. But I knew my dad was there watching the game. He always wanted to sit in the Gold's and my opportunity when I got the energy. I was to give him the ticket to the gold section to Maple Leaf Gardens. So that will always be one of the highlights that I made it in a gel and I was able to do something for my late father and it'll always be a moment that I will cherish because I know when I was standing on the bench looking over the empty seat, I knew somebody was sitting there so that would be the moment that I relish the most in my career.
