Top Cheddar with Kevin 'Killer' Kaminski - the fighter, scorer, coach and entrepreneur
The pride of Churchbridge, Saskatchewan! They named the rink after this guy for very good reason. Kevin ‘Killer’ Kaminski brought a level of fierce passion to the game of hockey and continues to this day off the ice as a coach and his Killer side business.
A fan favourite of the Saskatoon Blades, Kevin went on to a career with the Minnesota North Stars, Quebec Nordiques and the Washington Capitals. During his four seasons with the Capitals, his hard-nosed style of play would make him a fan favourite, as he would not hesitate to fight players much bigger than he was. He would play three more seasons in the minors for the Portland Pirates of the American Hockey League (winning the Calder Cup) before retiring in 1999.
Since playing, he has spent the last twenty years behind the bench and is currently the GM/Head Coach of the La Ronge Ice Wolves of the SJHL. His first season as head coach there saw him win Coach of the Year honours.
Kevin has built himself a fun little side business including events, charity events, hockey schools and all kinds of Killer merchandise. Check it out at http://killer-hockey.com/
Kevin also talked about a new initiative he is doing with Love My Mind. Be sure to check that out and support where you can. https://lovemymind.ca/
