our mission

To Educate and inspire all hockey players, parents, and coaches

Welcome to the hockey think tank!

In 2017, I started this venture which has since grown into one of the most respected voices in the hockey world today. Through social media, team building seminars, individual mentoring, video breakdown, a podcast that has been downloaded over a million times, and much more – my goal has been to provide quality and unbiased information and inspiration for everyone that loves the game.

Navigating the hockey world can be stressful and confusing. As a former Division One college coach recruiting all over North America, I got the chance to speak with so many of you about that reality in the rinks. Through those conversations I quickly learned that there is a huge need for way more education for players, coaches, parents, and organizations. I started the Hockey Think Tank to provide that much needed perspective and improve the game I fell in love with as a kid.

I’m proud to say that I’ve coached with three Division One hockey programs (Michigan, Cornell, and Miami-Ohio) and won championships at all three. I’ve worked with numerous other players, coaches, parents, and teams as well, including multiple college programs, youth organizations, and businesses. My passion is for helping those individuals and teams attain their wildest goals and dreams while enjoying the hell out of the process of getting there. It’s what gets me up in the morning.

So, I hope you take a look and enjoy the site. If there’s anything on here that you’d like to check out more, let me know by emailing me at topher@thehockeythinktank.com

Thank you!
