DescriptionWorking as an Engineer, he plotted out an array of angles from a common point at the back of the net. This gave him perfect positioning and knowledge of the shooters odds. With skilled hands and an analytical mind the engineer approached his games the same way he approached the projects he would plot. Desperate to make the playoffs, his coach approached him with the challenge of designing a new system for the team. Without hesitation the Engineer went to work planning innnovative new techniques for 1 and 2 man forecheck, breakout, nuetral zone positioning, and others. Quietly passing these on to his coach the teams practices took on a whole new look and to everyones surprise the Engineeers team rose from last in the standings to second place overall. His team went on to win the Championship and his coach won the prestigous “Coach of the Year” gold ring. At the end of the season while cleaning out his locker, the Engineer picked up his skate and tied to the lace was a ring. On it was inscribed ”Coach of the Year”.
