Gibsons Continue to Expand Their Impact on SoCal Hockey Scene

by Kyle Shohara @kyleshohara / AnaheimDucks.com

IRVINE, Calif. -- It started with a conversation a few years ago. John and Alexa Gibson, looking to get involved in the local community, wanted to find a way to use hockey as a means of giving back. Last year they teamed up with San Diego Ducks Sled Hockey, hosting two suite nights for the team as well as a clinic on the ice at Honda Center. The Gibsons loved it. So much, in fact, they wanted to expand their impact this year.

Leave it to the Fowlers for One Special Ball Hockey Bonanza

by Kyle Shohara @kyleshohara / AnaheimDucks.com

IRVINE, Calif. -- Even under a blazing sun, Cam Fowler managed to keep his cool.

Sweat started to bead just beneath the bill of his Ducks hat, and the back of his grey t-shirt began to speckle as the ambient temperature rose above the 90-degree mark. But no sort of heat was going to bring him down. Not on this day. Standing in the parking lot of Great Park Ice on Saturday afternoon, Cam and his wife, Jasmine, looked out at the sprawling scene. Four street hockey rinks, 16 teams and upwards of 80-plus kids. This was the inaugural C4Kids Ball Hockey Bonanza.

Although you're already back in Orange County for the upcoming season, how was your summer in Sweden?
It was really good to be back home in Sweden. I spent time with family and worked out. I did a ton of my workouts there. My body feels pretty good. I'm excited to get going here in a little bit. I've been on the ice at Great Park getting ready for the season. It's fun to be out there skating with guys like Getzy (Ryan Getzlaf) and Manso (Josh Manson).

How has your summer been?
It's been good. It's been unusually long, but at the same time I just can't wait to start playing hockey. It's been way too long. I'm so tired of being in the gym and working out. I just want to get things going. [My fiancée Emmeli] and I have been in Northern Sweden for a few weeks building a cottage up there. It's her hometown. It's like being in the outdoors. It's different, but I like it up there.

How has your summer been?
It's been great. I stayed out in California for a little while and enjoyed some of my summer out there. I started training there once I got back from the World Championships. The last few weeks I've been closer to home training in Toronto. [Last week] I was down in Windsor [Ontario], which was nice. Got to see some old friends. I've been to a few weddings, so I've been busy that way. It's been a lot of fun. Kyle Palmieri got married a few weeks ago, so it was nice. Saw Cam [Fowler] and some old teammates, good friends. It was nice to be able to catch up with everyone.

You've been a traveling man this offseason. How was Italy?
It's so nice over there. We [he and wife Julie] went there two years ago for Cogs' [Andrew Cogliano's] wedding, and we just fell in love with it. We always wanted to go back. We figured things are only going to get busier as life goes on. We went to Florence, Tuscany and the Amalfi Coast. That was our first time in Florence and Tuscany. We've been to the Amalfi Coast before, and we knew we wanted to go back. Florence was nice, but Tuscany was amazing. We were there 11 nights.
