How I Got My Start in Rec Hockey

Robert Landis (forward); Partner/Origination, private equity firm

“I started playing rec hockey at the tender young age of 50, because both my 8-year-old and 4-year-old sons wanted to play. When I later became an assistant coach, I realized I knew very little about the game (my hockey skills were even worse). I had skated on ponds as a kid and could go forward, but had little ability to turn or go backwards. As my sons got better, so did I. But once each reached the 4th grade, their skills quickly surpassed mine!

“Every summer, we went to hockey camps in Canada (they with their age group, while I skated with the men’s group, who, like me, wanted to get better). In high school, my sons got much better, and one even made All State for his final two years. I, on the other hand, peaked in terms of ability but not the love for the sport, and the need for me to find a year-round form of good exercise and—even better—camaraderie.

“Little did I know that playing hockey would allow me to make contacts across a variety of business enterprises, some that have helped me professionally in my own business, but also personally with my neighbors and service providers, such contractors and electricians, as well as those in public service, like police officers and teachers. I’ve also become involved in helping to run a charity event that involves setting up a men’s competition to play in Madison Square Garden—a great opportunity to give back to the community. All from the game of hockey.”

Even though I’m a very dedicated Toronto Maple Leafs fan (even in these trying times), I tend to watch many other hockey games throughout the season. While watching these games over the years, I’ve noticed that each arena has its own quirks, be it quirks in the environment of the arena itself, the fans, or even the players. There are many of these little quirks with each of the NHL teams, but I’ve selected my favourite for the purpose of this article.

Turning Heads & Raising Eyebrows: 5 NHL Teams with Surprising Starts

1) The Clobbering Canadiens

Hockey fans have never been able to doubt the talent of Habs net minder, Carey Price. His resumé speaks for itself, from Hart and Vezina Trophies to Team Canada Gold, Price has been in the conversation as one of the league’s best goalies for nearly his entire career. Last season in particular, many hockey aficionados were under the impression that he was the only reason that his team made it through to the second round of the playoffs, doubting the actual talent in front of him, and attributing their second round exit to it.
