I worked one game as a cameraman at the Joe in 97. Got lost in the bowels of the arena. Steve Yzerman gave me directions, and even held the door for me while I pushed the camera equip. Always remember him for the way he took the time out of his pre-game to help me.

After a Cleveland Lumberjacks game I was putting my camera gear away, and I got invited into the locker room to meet the Hanson Brothers who were meeting the team. It was funny to see pro athletes with stars in their eyes as they met the Hansons, the same way I was being there and meeting with them. Marty St. Louis was on that team, and I did shake his hand.

Jock Collander was my coach for adult learn to play hockey camp. When a guy with his name on the cup shows you how to shoot, you pay attention

Not a TON of opportunities to meet hockey players in Cleveland, but I haven't done too badly. Met a bunch more recently at Jackets events, and have personally given dvd's of my videos to Nikita Filatov, Jared Boll, and Danny Gare
