Hockey parents are a breed of their own! We know it. They know it.
Their kids are entrenched in the game from birth. From baby gear to home furnishings to acting a fool in the stands (not all hockey parents are guilty of this!), their love for the game of hockey knows no end.
Granted, it’s difficult to challenge their supreme dedication to the sport. Not only are they loyal NHL fans, they’re fully committed to their son or daughter’s ambitions of making it to the show – including all the expensive equipment, 5 AM practices, and road trips one can handle.
