Quispamsis, New Brunswick

COMMUNITY: 

“It’s a town that everyone knows what’s going on and everything that’s happening in the neighborhood. It was a tight group like that.”

THE PEOPLE:

“They truly are the nicest people that I’ve ever been a part of. You can be a stranger and they’ll see you walking down the street and if you look hungry, they’ll take you in and feed you. It’s just the type of atmosphere there and that’s why I love it so much. That’s the best way to describe the people there, very generous people.”

MY NEIGHBOURHOOD:

“We had a pond in our subdivision. When it got cold enough, Dad would come down and dig a hole and make sure it was deep enough, give us a shovel so we could shovel it and gave us a puck. We’d stay down there for hours and play.”

CHILDHOOD HOCKEY MEMORY:

"I was playing street hockey with my brothers, Dale, Derek and Tim. The only way I was able to play with them was if I was a goalie. I remember I played net and got my two front teeth knocked out. They were just dangling there. And mom kind of helped me out and pushed them in and held them and luckily enough they stuck. When I think of hockey as a youngster, that's a memory that comes up. They threw me in net and used me as a target pretty much.”

WHAT DO YOU MISS MOST?

“I miss the pace of it more or less. It’s a slow and relaxing pace, it’s not as hectic. First and foremost though, I miss my family. My brothers are married with kids and my parents are there too. They all live within 10-15 miles of each other.”

SUMMER IN YOUR HOMETOWN:

“As I kid I played baseball in the summer pretty competitively until I was about 13. Once I focused on hockey and quit baseball, I started playing golf in the summers.”

WHAT IS YOUR HOMETOWN KNOWN FOR?

“It’s a big seafood place, lots of fish and lobster. There is a lot of great fishing there.”
