Big news: Hockey of Tomorrow Certification is now available + our regular coverage too!
Your all-in-one innovation + positive impact + culture news in hockey.
Dear Hockey of Tomorrow reader,
We have BIG news to announce, so we’ll take an extra 30 seconds of your attention.
After a tremendous amount of requests when it comes to consulting and learning, we’ve decided to launch the official 23-24 Hockey of Tomorrow certification for the start of the next season.
This is exciting on so many levels:
We will showcase a half-day of content on positive change through the lens of hockey
The idea is to use what’s happening in hockey and learn from it so you can bring powerful frameworks to your workplace
And most importantly, this will help us carry on our mission to showcase all the positive change in the hockey world.
If you ever wondered how you can help support us, this is it: either sign up to our certification or buy one and gift it to someone.
I won’t lie, staying independent and keeping the lights on in this conservative industry is not easy.
Paying fairly for diverse contributors that cover non-Barstool clickbait content isn’t a breeze.
So if you think that we’re doing a good job, you can be an active force in keeping us active for the long haul.
The idea is this: we know it ain’t cheap, but get your workplace to pay for the certification, since it’s continuing education on steroids.
Why sign up to boring management seminars when you can learn through your passion?
We’re planning on making this an intimate gathering with high quality participants and providing valuable networking opportunities throughout the year.
I’m looking forward to you joining us.
Date: August 21st, 2023 from 1 Pm to 5:30 PM ( all virtual)
now… our FEATURED PIECE
Our featured piece this week covers the story of Claire Buchanan, a Para-ice hockey player.
Our contributor Bret Willis sat down with her to chat about her biggest inspirations and what led her to become the woman and athlete she is today.
As a queer disabled mom, Buchanan prides herself on the advocacy she carries with her every single day and will continue to carry.
She’s active on social media, spreading her message and trying to improve the conditions of disabled athletes. She does not just want things to change, she’s doing everything she can to be a part of the change.
You will probably should look into the derby side of things. Both are played on skates, but what makes roller derby stands out is the type of skates they use. Our contributor Ponné Thrift wrote about the sport you didn’t know you loved.
The National Hockey League have banned specialty jerseys for the upcoming season. The news came out a couple of days ago, but it is still hard to process the meaning behind this decision. Ariel Melendez gives her take
....+ two stories that haven't been covered yet on our platform
Katherine Henderson is the new CEO of Hockey Canada
The inspiring journey of Owen Brady
Hockey Canada will have a new CEO
And no, she wasn’t hire for damage control or just because she’s a woman.
She’s been a stud for the Curling world and has the background of a person capable of turning things around.
She’s done a tremendous job with Curling Canada. They are constantly involving and trying to find new ways to improve the national success of curling. Nice pick, Hockey Canada.

The inspiring journey of Owen Brady
You have to root for Owen Brady.
The 20-year-old hockey player beat cancer’s a$$.
And this summer, he will battle to wear a National Hockey League uniform, as he was invited to the Florida Panthers development camp.
One step closer to his biggest dream, but far away from where he was years ago.

Last season, Brady played junior hockey with the Carleton Palace Canadiens, where he put up 16 points in 44 games as a defensemen. This after not skating for 2 years… WTF eh?
Back in 2018, when Brady noticed a lump on his shin.
The minute he learned that it was a cancerous, he didn’t think he would play hockey again.
Never ever bet against a motivated hockey player.
That’s it for this edition of the Hockey of Tomorrow newsletter. As we continue to highlight the best, most diverse, and most interesting, off-ice hockey stories, we would appreciate any feedback you might have.
Thanks again for reading this new edition of Hockey of Tomorrow.
