Who is your favorite NHL® player and why?

I would say Kaapo Kahkonen he shows up to work doesn’t complain and does well.

What is your favorite part of the Future Goals™program? How do you see STEM in the game of hockey?

The way that it brings real life situations with what we are learning in class. It gives the students another way to learn.
