"I have been working with Ben ever since I joined the Ice Dogs organization. He has helped my game dramatically in all areas.
Ben has always been there to push my limits everyday and it has shown in my game.
He is also a great person off the ice and always brings forward a positive attitude.
I have had the privilege to work with Ben doing clinics around the area and seeing the
smiles he puts on a kids face says it all."
