|Every year things keep getting better and 2009 was no exception.
On Friday June 26 I was at the Bell Centre in Montreal along with my son Wes, Dawn Braid and her husband Robert as John Tavares was selected #1 overall in the NHL Entry Draft. I cannot describe the emotions at that moment but my memories flowed back to September 2004 when John first showed up on my doorstep. It was mere days before his 14th birthday and he wanted to train with me. Five years and hours and hours of work in the gym and on the ice and John was realizing his dream. I recall a car ride home from a Milton IceHawk practice in late 2004. John was telling me how he planned to help his parents once he reached the NHL. I replied what if you are not drafted and he looked me in the eyes and said “...c’mon Rich”. It has been quite the journey and it is only part way done as a great NHL future lies ahead.
