I will try to keep this short…
After 15 years of playing professional hockey I have decided to hang up my skates for good! It definitely was not an easy decision but I feel I can leave the game I love with my head held high and with no regrets! Hockey has brought my family and I all over the world and I’ll be forever grateful for the amazing memories! More importantly hockey has given me the opportunity to meet some of the best people on the planet…I know I will miss the game, but it’s the people and relationships that I will miss and cherish the most!!
Thankyou to all management, coaches, trainers, and staff for everything you have done for me and my family! I have to give a special shout-out to everyone at @ec_vsv_official for doing everything possible to make our last 3 years as easy as possible…jacks diabetes, my fathers passing, getting us a beautiful house to live in so the kids had room to play…words cannot describe how much everything meant to me.
Thanks to all my teammates! I’ve created so many lifelong friends over the years and I’ll really miss all of the laughs in the locker room!
Thanks to all of the fans who have always supported me throughout the years! After playing a season without fans I can truly say you mean so much to the game of hockey! It’s just not fun without you guys in the rink!
Thanks Mom and Dad for everything you ever did for me growing up and always cheering me on and supporting me! I owe you guys everything. I’m so grateful my dad got to see me play during my last season and I know he was watching me during my final game!
And finally a huge thank-you to Danielle, Jackson, and Joey. You guys move across the world with me and uproot your own lives just so I could do what I love! I love you with all of my heart and can’t wait to get home and start the next chapter of our lives!
So that wasn’t very short but I could go on for days thanking every person or team individually. So in closing…one more big thank-you to anyone I’ve come across the past 15 years! I love you all!!
