Ben Hankinson - NHL Player - NHLPA Player Agent - Hockey Journey EP37

My next guest, Ben Hankinson, has been someone I've wanted to get on the show since I got into the podcast game because we spent a lot of time together years ago as college teammates and training partners once we turned pro in the off-season. Mr. Hankinson is a Minnesota native, where he grew up going to school and playing sports for the powerhouse Edina Hornets. He went on to play Division 1 hockey for the hometown Minnesota Gophers. In the 1987 NHL Entry Draft, Ben was drafted in the 6th round, 107th overall, to the New Jersey Devils, playing 448 professional games over seven seasons, 43 of them in the NHL. He wasn't much for goal-scoring but did carve his way to the NHL by chucking the knuckles a bit as he was fighting in the heavyweight division. Those were scary individuals!! He's currently a certified NHLPA player Agent with Octagon Hockey, so we have a lot to discuss. Enjoy the conversation! For more information, please visit the links below.
