    break Jeffrey was born in Montreal, Quebec where he lived for 4 years. After moving to Ontario he spent his entire youth hockey career in Burlington playing AAA hockey. Jeffrey was leading scorer all through his minor hockey career and received numerous MVP awards. He was North American gold medal champion in European hockey tournament in Prague in 2010 where he competed against a number of current OHL and NHL players.

Jeffrey attended high school in Burlington and in Vaughan where he attended the Hill Academy, a school for student athletes. Jeffrey completed grade 12 in Owen Sound while playing for the OHL Owen Sound Attack hockey organization during the 2013-2014 season. Jeffrey continued to play for Owen Sound Attack for 2014-2015 and was an integral part of their organization playing in a total of 133 out of 146 games for the two years including all playoff games, until is career was ended due to illness.

Jeffrey’s career was abruptly ended when he was diagnosed with a heart condition that prevents him from playing competitive hockey. Jeffrey prides himself in being a hard worker and having a passion for the game that he wants to share with young rising hockey players.

Jeffrey will be pursuing a University degree by using his four year University school package afforded to him through his OHL contract. Jeffrey attributes his very fortunate schooling package to the sole efforts of The Player’s Group (TPG). ‘TPG provided me with the highest level of support before, during and after my OHL career which I would like to do the same for other hockey kids. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to be part of the TPG Family and their philosophy of development and providing guidance on and off the office’.

Jeffrey has experience in teaching young athletes by working with his Dad who has been running skills and development training for over 10 years. He also has Family who has competed at the NHL level. Jeffrey is an all around athlete and has competed at the highest level of baseball, football and lacrosse and will use his acquired skills to inspire others. He has a lot to offer from his own personal experiences and recently being close to the game of hockey knows what it takes to mold a player into a committed athlete.

‘As I move forward under the stewardship of TPG I hope to motivate aspiring young hockey players to reach their goals and fulfill their dreams’.
