Bryan Canter-Founder

Growing up in the non-traditional hockey area of central Maryland, Bryan found himself in love with the sport of hockey and the goaltender position itself.  His love and passion would only take him so far. He realized once he left home that pursuing his passion meant so much more then showing up at the rink and strapping on the pads.  Bryan quickly learned to value the process and work it takes to get to a high level.
