Kerry Goulet - Pro - Stop Concussions - Hockey Journey EP35

My next guest, Kerry Goulet was born and raised in Winnipeg, and it was there that he starred in junior hockey and later in ball hockey. His Winnipeg Grasshoppers, represented Manitoba in 8 national ball hockey championships, collecting the title in 1985. In 2006, Kerry was inducted into the Canadian Ball Hockey Association’s Hall of Fame. He credits his experience with Hockey Manitoba and ball hockey with assisting in honing his skills for a successful international ice hockey career that saw him spend 16 seasons as a player, coach, and general manager with six different teams in the German 1st, 2nd and 3rd Division. His years as a player saw him collect an astounding 1997 points in 505 games which earned Goulet the honor of having his jersey (#29) retired. At the age of 52, he was asked back to his old club in Germany to attempt to collect 2000 points….which he did with a 5-3 win contributing a goal and two assists. Kerry’s coaching record was also sensational, with 312 wins in 452 games. Kerry has dedicated much of his office energy to charitable causes, with his focus on concussions and spinal cord injuries in sport. His motivation behind the cause comes from his former hockey and ball hockey teammate, who suffered a broken neck, leaving him a quadriplegic. One of the lessons learned from his friend Robert’s plight Goulet recalls was, “It is not what you collect along your journey…championships, scoring races, trophies, money, cars…. but what you give back, that will be your legacy.” A motto Kerry has adopted in his everyday life post being on the ice. Goulet is one of the founders of Stop Concussions, along with former NHLer Keith Primeau. To learn more about Kerry's call to adventure, please visit
