Jeff Hsi 

Our Hockey Dad, Jeff is truly one of a kind. Not having any experience as a hockey player, he never knew all three of his children would be playing roller hockey and ice hockey! How did this even happen to a dad whose favorite sport was volleyball and video games? The pandemic happened. With nowhere to go and nothing to do, and just enough space to roll around in the den, all three kids, 4, 7 and 9, learned how to rollerblade.

Stan Fischler looks back at Trent Hunter's Islanders tenure

by Stan Fischler @StanFischler / NewYorkIslanders.com

When Trent Hunter broke into the NHL with the Islanders, all the starry goods were there. The shot -- a bullet. The style -- aggressive. The grit -- he hit. The defense; he diligently played the 200-foot game.

Everything looked so good right from the get-go in his first NHL games during the intense 2002 playoff against Toronto. Chronicler Zachary Weinstock, remembers it only too well.

In fact, it would be a fair to say that Denmark's gift to the National Hockey League ranks among the most multi-dimensional forwards in the Islanders half-century of operation.
