It was October of 2005, my first year playing pro hockey and I found myself in Lowell Massachusetts playing for the Lowell Lockmonsters of the American Hockey League. I had been drafted by the Carolina Hurricanes in 2004 and this was their affiliate. I was 19 years old, living on my own for the first time and my first order of business, like any other kid moving out, was to find some quality roommates to start off this next adventure. I had gone through rookie camp and main camp with other rookies in Carolina over the course of September so there were a few guys I had in mind that would be great roommates. One was Kevin Estrada who I didn’t know at all coming in to training camp but we had the connection of growing up not far from each other and we had the same mentality and approach to the game.
The Ladd Foundation is excited to announce its very first charity event, Sturgeon Fishing with an NHL Star. In July 2017, angler-donors will have the chance to travel to British Columbia’s wildest and most celebrated angling landscape to fish and hang out with some of our most celebrated NHL athletes. Proceeds from the event will go to the Rick Hansen Foundation and the Fraser River Sturgeon Conservation Society.
