Is it a power skating camp that you are taking with him? I would be interested to have info on his power skating sessions. Email address, Web site ??
no its not
He was hired by a friend of mine to teach Atome,PeeWee and Bantam players. just run some drills with them (skating, passing, shooting, keeping their head up, ect..) Im just helping him out on the ice. correcting the kids mistakes.
Yep, he's a nice fellow. Got to know him a little bit a couple years ago at the development camp. Verty approachable. Spoke with him for quite some time going all the way back to his WHA days as one of the Baby Bulls. Enjoyed hearing about his time working on Making the Cut too.
We used to call him "Blaston" because of his powerful shot that was only occasionally on-target. He could probably still skate with NHLers today. Fast, mobile.
I remembered seeing Gaston at an "Ol' Timers" game in Ottawa where they played against a local law enforcement team. At one point they passed it to Gaston in his own end and he skated to the other end with rocket type fireworks strapped to his skates. It looked pretty cool but for some reason I could only think of Wile E. Coyote.
