Today’s guest developed a love for the game of hockey at an early age growing up in New Jersey. Mike shares what it was like going to his first NHL game with his father at MSG; to watch his dad’s Rangers take on Mike’s team the Philadelphia Flyers.
Mike was one of those kids that would do anything to listen to a late night hockey game, including having a small transistor radio tucked inside his pillow to listen to a broadcast. His dreams were to be a star hockey player or a play by play announcer in the NHL, but it would be his ability to write that would land him a career with the NHL.
Mike’s fondest memories include a chance to be Gordie Howe’s personal guide and a close personal connection he has developed with Duncan Keith.
