I was born and raised in Brandon, MB Canada, one of the greatest hockey hot beds in Canada and home to the Brandon Wheat Kings. I grew up playing hockey there on "the POND". During my professional hockey career, I played for the Wichita Thunder (ECHL) for seven seasons. I moved to Dallas in 2007 to pursue my coaching career. I have a true passion for the game of hockey. My main coaching theory is Hard Work + Fun = Product/Success.
I expect 110% from all of my boys every time they show up to the rink. My practices and training sessions are very fast-tempo and always cover the systems of the game at a high impact speed. MHT will cover everything from conditioning, shooting and passing, positioning, puck skills, over-speed training, quick feet, and power skating. I expect my players to be in top physical condition so they can compete in any game situation every night. I want to ensure maximum player participation and create a higher quality and quantity of repetitions for optimal skill development.
I am very passionate about coaching. I want each player to develop and get better every time they get on the ice.
