Welcome into another week at the grind my people. Three short weeks away from the return to the ice, right? Anyone else stupidly ready to get this started up? In the meantime, let’s take another crack at the “Who Am I…?” gauntlet!

Your mission: Take the five clues below pertaining to a hockey relevant individual and figure out who the hell they are! They could be a player, a coach, or some other random (e.g., celebrity, media type, athlete) connected to the game SOMEHOW. But please: It’s not enough to just identify them. You’ve got to back that answer up! Show your work! Educate the rest of us! Enter complete responses in the comments (person and how they fit) and we’ll see how long it takes to identify our mystery person! Here we go with #58 ….


1. I was not born in North America.
2. I won a Cup my first year in the NHL.
3. I was drafted twice.
4. I was recruited in college for a different sport
5. I am a member of three Hall of Fame’s.


Well wishes and positive energy to you all. In these dark and dreary days of negative messaging and news all around let’s make an effort to add some positivity into the mix. Support yourself, yours and any random people in general you cross paths with during the run of your day. What you share can take on a life of its own and go further than you could ever begin to appreciate. All the best!
