By: Topher Scott If you’ve followed me on social media or have listened to our podcast, you’ve probably heard me talk about the pros and cons of “PLAYING FAST.”  I feel like it’s the biggest buzzword of the past decade in the hockey world (although I think deception may take that banner soon).

By: Topher Scott This weekend was rewarding in so many ways.  Through our charity hockey game, we raised over $130,000 for the special needs community.  We had a hell of a time on the ice with NHL players all the way down to people who work in local businesses.  2,000 people packed the stands, the...

By: Topher Scott Last week, the St. Louis Blues won their first Stanley Cup in team history.  It was a throwback playoff run that I’m sure Don Cherry was proud of.  It was an old school, backyard-street-hockey type win….A battle of attrition with each team that stood in their path.

By: Topher Scott Best friends. Thousands of miles. Great stories. Incredible bonds. UNBELIEVABLE times. Poker tournaments ending with someone throwing their cards and screaming obscenities while the rest of the boys howl with laughter.  A victory song blaring after a big win.  Euchre games lasting late into the night.  Bonds that are formed forever.

By: Topher Scott I recently learned of a word that has given me a whole new perspective when it comes to conflict and self-awareness.  That word is CONFABULATION. What a goofy sounding word, eh? I had never even heard of it before, but in listening to a podcast with Brené Brown (a world class leader...
