Ever since I watched my first hockey game, I loved hockey. I originally had the idea of becoming an NHL player, but that sort of died out. Now I want to be an NHL General Manager. GMs have busy yet cool jobs. What attracted me to this was that every game, the GM of the team is there, watching the game, analyzing the team as a whole, and the players individually. They are there for business for the most part, but they’re also there because they love hockey like me and they get the best seat in the house! I plan to make this happen by majoring in Sport & Movement Science with a concentration of Sports Management. My classes include Public Speaking. This is great for me because GMs do this all the time. Press conferences, post-game interviews, pre-game interviews, and draft selections all require having good public speaking skills. As the years pass, I’ll hopefully have enough experience to get a job at the NHL. Internships will help me get that. This job could change the world by increasing the global popularity of hockey by drafting international players from non-hockey countries. An example of this is Al Montoya. He is Cuban-American and is the backup goaltender of the Florida Panthers. It’s inspiring to see that he’s maintaining his career in the NHL being from a non-hockey market. This can extend throughout the world and I would like to be a part of that.
