Tell us about yourself!
I’m Sylvain Perrier from Gatineau, QC. I coach novice girls competitive (my daughter’s team). I’ve always loved hockey—the only thing I love more is my wife and daughter. When I was growing up we were too poor for me to play hockey, but I’ve always had a passion for it.
What are you most looking forward to as a #WHLAmbassador?
Talking hockey, sharing hockey ideas, sharing hockey stories (good or bad).
If you could sit down and have dinner with one female hockey player, who would it be and why?
Hayley Wickenheiser! I would love to hear her story of playing hockey when girls were not really accepted to know what her mindset was, her motivation, her passion, etc.
What’s the best advice you’ve been given in hockey or in life?
Talent does not always win games, heart and determination does.
What’s your dream for women’s hockey?
That it becomes main stream and appreciated.
