Jake Gardner-Toronto Maple Leafs

Jake Gardner“One of the best trips I have ever had and one that probably impacted me more than any other as a kid playing hockey was back in 2000 when an All Star Team from Minneapolis traveled to Italy and Switzerland. We played in an International Tournament in Lake Como, Italy and beat the Russians in the final to win the tourney. I can still remember going to Milano, Bellagio, and playing more games in Switzerland. I knew then I wanted to play in College, Internationally, and in the NHL!”

Greg Carvel-St. Lawrence University

"We went into the trip with a little a knowledge because teams from the league have done it before and raved about it," Carvel explained. "But the trip went beyond my expectations. The hockey experience was great…we played pro teams which were a good challenge for us. The places that we went were just beautiful, from Lake Como to driving through the Alps for every game we played, to touring the Italian Riviera, to Venice to Rome…"Probably the best part of the trip was to be together as a team for ten days straight and it was just a great bonding experience. As a coach I am excited that it springboards us into the season. It is not a cliche to say that this was a once in a lifetime experience!”

Head Coach Bob Gaudet

It was an unbelievable experience for our team. We went for 10 days in late August and early September and what it did for team bonding was something even I couldn’t predict. We took 21 upperclassmen and for the returning guys on our team to be together and get the experience of playing really good hockey and the culture of going to places like Venice and Rome, being at the Vatican and the Colosseum, and Lake Como and Switzerland was truly remarkable. It truly was the trip of a lifetime for everyone involved."

Derek Stepan-New York Rangers

Eurosportours“I traveled to Italy and Prague back in 2005-06 with Shattuck St. Mary’s and they were amazing trips. It was fun getting to know the director Brad as he too is from Hastings, MN like myself. We played in a spectacular tournament in Switzerland against the Russians, Czechs, and Swiss which was my first International Hockey experience. The following year we played against Sparta and Slavia Praha which has an incredible ‘Hockey Culture’. Playing across the pond really helped my development and gave me a taste of the European game!"
