The boys from the Real Life Podcast are back with a brand new episode of the show, and this week, they’re welcoming a former Edmonton Oiler, Andy Sutton, into the mix to talk about his career and what he’s up to in retirement.
Kicking things off, the podcast got started with a preview of Andy Sutton’s NHL career and how he was such an imposing force on the ice when he played. First up, the guys asked Andy to walk through his come up to the NHL, and if you hadn’t heard the story before, it was incredible to hear how his work ethic and mindset basically carried him to hockey’s top league. From the way he broke into the league to the way he put his body to the test on a nightly basis, it was fascinating to listen to Sutton tell stories from his career with so much openness and passion. After his career wrapped up, Sutton knew he wanted to stick within the hockey space and that’s what drove him to get into the gear game. Driven by his passion for the sport, customer service, and product innovation, Sutton is now making major moves with Verbero hockey as he looks to transform the way we buy and market hockey equipment and apparel. Needless to say, this was a fascinating interview with an extremely interesting individual and you’ll definitely want to give it a listen.
