I want to tell you a little bit about my dad.
His name was Michael, he played hockey when I was a kid, and he was the one who got me into this sport.
He worked at Angelica's Restaurant in Middleton, Massachusetts. Even though he worked a lot of hours, he still took me to practice whenever he could and tried hard to never miss one of my youth hockey games.
It was hard for him to work in the restaurant business and still be a hockey dad, so he started his own furniture repair company so that he would have more time to spend with me.
