by Anya Snider / WinnipegJets.com

Raised in rural Saskatchewan, Laurie Boschman grew up on outdoor hockey rinks like many typical Canadian kids. He also spent a good portion of his life in the province of Manitoba. Playing his junior hockey career for the Brandon Wheat Kings (1976 -1979), and playing professionally with Winnipeg Jets from 1982-1990, Boschman has nothing but good things to say about Winnipeg. Currently, Boschman and his family reside in Ottawa, where they decided to settle after his retirement in 1993. For the last 23 years Laurie has dedicated his time to working with a Christian-based organization called Hockey Ministries International, a program that runs hockey camps for athletes ages nine through 17.
