You might be surprised to see NHL’er Matt Halischuk as our athlete of the month for September – – after Team RevCon athlete Damian Warner broke his newly minted Canadian Record in the Decathlon at the World Championships in Beijing. What can I say – RevCon athletes are dominating!
For this month Matt gets all the glory because he has made a career for himself in the NHL as an “undersized” player. Thankfully 240 pounder Dustin Byfuglien is a Winnipeg Jets teammate, so that is one guy he doesn’t need to worry about on the ice – other than when he is in front of the net when he let’s a slapper go 🙂
Anyway, let’s hear what Matt has to say about his path and what has helped him succeed…

Congratulations Matt – can’t wait to see all your hard work this summer pay off on the ice.
PS – guess I should mention that Team RevCon athlete – lefty Jeff Francis was called up by the Blue Jays to finish off the MLB season after a successful few months with their AAA club. Has already eaten up some innings for them, so we are pretty pumped for the play-off run – – especially Tyler 🙂
