Dave King on how and why the game is changing

Aaron Wilbur

I’m a husband, father, sports nut, entrepreneur and grateful to call Vancouver home. I enjoy cooking, watching live music and hiking the North Shore mountains with my family. My son is a football player, which has turned me into a big football fan. It’s helped me appreciate what hockey parents go through, especially those who have little experience with the sport, when trying to navigate their child up the hockey ladder.

In episode #156 of the Glass and Out Podcast, we welcome one of the most revered coaches in the history of hockey: Dave King.

King began his coaching career in 1972 at his alma mater, the University of Saskatchewan. From there, he went on to coach at every level of hockey, including time in the NHL, Europe, Junior Hockey and Internationally with Team Canada.

The list of King’s career achievements are extensive to say the least and almost too long to list. They include a Canadian University National Championship, a WJC Gold Medal, and multiple Olympic appearances with Team Canada. On top of that, you can add being a made a member of the Order of Canada, and inductions into the Canadian Olympic Hall of Fame, the International Ice Hockey Hall of Fame, the Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame and the Alberta Sports Hall of Fame.

Simply put, there are few coaches in hockey with his experience and knowledge of the game.

He is also the author of a new book – Ice Bags and Loose Pucks; How and Why the Game is Changing, where he explains how the game has evolved over the years and provides written descriptions of tactics used in the game today.
