What is your first hockey memory?
Playing house league when I was maybe 6 years old and thinking that the rink was gigantic. I also remember running into a kid from the other team and then stopping mid-game to help him up.

Is there a specific food or dish that you most associate with hockey? A $19 prime rib sandwich. Simply because I'll smash those when I go to games at the ACC. Nostalgically though, I'd say bacon and eggs since that's what I'd always eat after hockey as a kid.

What’s your favourite Hockey term?
Wheel. It's so versatile. You can use it as a way to get your teammates to skate or you can use it to chirp other players. As the great Letterkenny says, "Buddy, you couldn't wheel a tire down a fucking hill."

What’s your favourite chirp?
Buddy, you couldn't wheel a tire down a fucking hill.

Why is the work that Community Food Centres Canada does so important to you?
Because it keeps food democratic. It makes great food available to people of all backgrounds and classes.

See which Montreal + Toronto chefs are worth their salt on the ice. Tickets for The Drake Barn Burner Hockey Game on Feb. 4 @ Essroc Arena in Prince Edward County are on sale, here and include not-so-average concessions by the chefs and participating restaurants.
After the game, the chefs will trade their skates back in for their chef whites so they can do what they do best. Join us for a post-game strolling dinner with chef-designed stations and Lot. 40 cocktails by the fire, ice cold Moosehead Lager, Norman Hardie + Rosehall Run wines + more! Tickets for The Drake Barn Burner Post-Game Dinner at Drake Devonshire are on sale here.
