About Today’s Guest, Jeff Serowik:
Jeff Serowik went to Lawrence Academy Prep School, played Division I hockey at Providence College (on scholarship), and earned a Bachelor of Science in Finance before beginning his 10-year professional hockey career. He’s an Eddie Shore Award recipient for Best Defenseman AHL. He’s the current record holder for most goals in a season by a defenseman. He played for these NHL teams: Toronto Maple Leafs, Boston Bruins, Pittsburgh Penguins.
Unfortunately, Jeff suffered a career-ending injury in 2000 at the pinnacle of his pro career while playing for the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Jeff founded Pro Ambitions Hockey, Inc with one summer camp 20 years ago and it has grown to be the largest Hockey School Outfit in the world with over 4000 campers attending their day and boarding/residential camps annually.
Jeff has been featured on the Competitive Edge television series on ESPN, TSN, Fox Sports Net, and NESN Sports Desk. He was also inducted into the 2009 NH Hockey Hall of Fame.
Jeff and Christine Serowik founded the charity Sports Saves Souls in 2003. Its mission is to help children that are facing adversities out of their control and give them an opportunity to shine and strengthen their spirit through hockey.
