Since their retirement as players from hockey, all twin brothers Peter and Chris Ferraro wanted was to provide youngsters a chance to perfect their craft on the ice while offering sound advice on the proper path to success.
That opportunity was certainly bolstered earlier this month when the Ferraro brothers joined Ronald and Joel Friedman as co-partners of the Muskegon Lumberjacks of the United States Hockey League. The Ferraro brothers are also partners with the Friedman's in the development of the new Ferraro Brothers Ice Center in East Meadow, N.Y., as well as the expanding hockey camp and training businesses run by the Ferraros.
For the Ferraros, working the business side for a team in the USHL presented a golden opportunity for them to expose aspiring players on Long Island and along the East Coast to the nation's only Tier 1 junior hockey league. The USHL is where both Peter and Chris accelerated their hockey careers.
