What an honour to meet the man ,the myth ,the legend behind the Slap Shot character “ Ogie Ogilthorpe” the real life Bill “Goldie” Goldthorpe . Great conversation about his life in hockey but also a very in depth talk and questions about hockey strength and conditioning. Goldie was also a bodybuilder and way ahead of his time as far as training goes . He also trained and learned from some kickboxing legends Bill Superfoot Wallace and Joe Lewis . Truly an interesting ,intelligent, nice man . I could have talked to him all day . Thank you for bringing him in Wayne Smith and sorry we missed you Liam Maguire who organized another tour for Goldie . Please get out and get the book on Goldie’s life story written by the great Liam Maguire .

Like team Captain Thomas Freel the year previous , Wil Murphy was a true leader and great captain of the Ottawa JrA Senators leading the team to yet another CCHL Bogart Cup . Wil showed tremendous work ethic with us over the last years as we have gotten to him not just as a hockey player but as a fine young man. Wil spent countless hours in the gym leading by example getting in extra as much as he could. He became an integral part of our day at the Coliseum . Always the first one in checking the board to see what the workout will be then getting the warm up in them always pushing the guys to work hard. Best of luck Wil down in Shreveport Louisiana playing for the Mudbugs in the NAHL which is a great organization as well . We will definitely miss you but hope to catch up this summer.

Mark Teevens “ forever young “ . Never forgotten . One of my best friends , Mark asked me to train him back in 1984 for his NHL draft year coming up . We trained hard all spring and summer together. He went back to Peterborough 22lbs heavier and much stronger and faster . He had his best season with 43 goals and a record setting 90 assists that still holds today . He was then drafted 64th overall by the Pittsburgh Penguins . Mark was the first Gladiator athlete and it was him that installed the confidence in me that I could be a strength coach . His most precious treasure was his daughter Tatiana, watching him with her was amazing to see . May his memory always be a blessing .
