Since August alone, the Finnish national team have won two seperate legs of the Euro Hockey Tour, taking down the Swedes in both tournaments, and just recently the junior team took home the 2014 World Junior Hockey Championships after defeating, you guessed it, Sweden. Among the notable names on this year’s list are Kari Lehtonen, the flexible, athletic Dallas Stars goaltender who will made the team over the injured Pekka Rinne,  Teemu Selänne, the legendary NHL forward  will become only the second ice hockey player ever to have participated in six Olympics as well Mikko Koivu, the Minnesota Wild captain who will miss a month with an injury.

Steven took a different route towards his hockey interests. Starting out as a big Habs fan, he started to gravitate towards the more obscure levels of hockey, such as the low level tournaments in Asia, strange club matches between teams most people in North America can’t pronounce, and even some 3am contests between Bulgaria and New Zealand. Aside from his love for strange hockey events, Steven occasionally acts as a mediocre ball hockey goalie following a failed attempt at making it to the NHL as a fourth line house league grinder. Beyond hockey, Steven is an avid racing fan and loves to chat about NASCAR, F1, Indycar, you name it. Oh, and don’t get him started on music. That is, unless you want the whole history of metal and a guitar lesson. Currently, Steven is a credentialed media member with the Mississauga Steelheads of the OHL, as well as with the Oakville Blades of the OJHL. Steven has also hosted the television show "The Hockey House" on TVCogeco in Ontario, as well as a segment under the same with on LeafsTV in Toronto. Home page: http://www.thehockeyhouse.net
