This past off-season, as a handful of NHL teams were in the process of filling head coaching vacancies, one name kept surfacing over and over again. It was Utica Comets Head Coach, Travis Green. While he didn’t secure a full time gig following a run to the Calder Cup final, it is expected that his opportunity to lead a NHL team is just around the corner.

We caught up with Travis during the NHL’s Young Stars tournament in Penticton as he guided the Canucks prospects. Travis shared his motivation for coaching and some of the lessons he learned from his coaches during his playing career, a career than spanned over 970 NHL games.
