His first introduction to hockey was in the 90’s on the streets in Central Jersey through fierce roller hockey games, which transitioned to pond hockey during that awesome cold snap from 1992 – 1996. While earning his Bachelor of Business Administration in Finance at James Madison University, he was one of the early members of JMU’s Hockey Club where they played in various tournaments and against other club hockey teams in neighboring states. He subsequently earned a Masters in Business Administration in Finance from Rutgers University.
Dan’s love for hockey was passed on to his two boys who began skating while they were still in diapers. He spent many hours at the rinks teaching his boys, and other children, the fundamentals of skating and hockey. He was more excited for the NHL Learn to Play program than his kids were, as he got to skate with the likes of Bruce Driver, Kenny Daneyko and Collin White, despite being an avid Wings fan. Although he recently relocated to Texas, he continues to coach at the Squirt and PeeWee levels in the Dallas Stars Metro Hockey League.
