“Gateway to the West” trip


Much of our growth has been a product of connecting with NHLers (past and present) that provide us with instant credibility and notoriety. As we build our St Louis brand it’s important to for us to also connect with leaders in the St Louis hockey community.
One of those leaders is Pat Maroon, a three time Stanley Cup champion and a St Louis native. Yesterday afternoon I was in a text conversation with former Avalanche d-man Nate Guenin who mentioned that he had a tight relationship with Pat Maroon. I asked Nate if he could connect me and Pat and he responded by saying, “Cap, let’s connect later this week when you’re back”. So I then get a call from my buddy Reed Low (former Blue) inviting me to wrap up my stay with a private tour of the St Louis Blues alumni locker room. This is an incredible room that has been done up right on every level! As we walk in the room there happens to one fella in the entire space…….and of course that is Pat Maroon!! Are you kidding me?! I told him about my earlier conversation with Nate and we both had a good laugh and of course had to take a pic and send it to Nate! After a brief intro about Dawg Nation, Pat then offered up signed sticks and the promise provide a jersey or two.
And that’s what we call “no coincidences”!!
