Episode 215: Ryan Vesce

On this episode of the Hockey Think Tank podcast, we bring on 14 year professional player now leading a mentorship program for youth hockey players, Ryan Vesce! Ryan hails from Long Island, NY and played his college hockey at Cornell. He then went on to play 14 years pro over 7 different countries, including a stint with the San Jose Sharks where he scored his first professional goal on an assist from Joe Thornton (we talk about it on the pod). We also talk:

-Developing a mindset for getting out of a slump
-Some incredible prank stories
-Scoring his first NHL goal in his hometown
-The value of mentorship as you go through your journey

Thank you to Ves for this awesome conversation – you’ll get a ton of insight into becoming an elite hockey player. Thank you also to our sponsors GelStx, TrainHeroic,, and our podcast parent company BlueWire Pods.
