Daniel Cleary

Daniel Cleary
President

After a successful 20 year professional hockey career Danny has taken his work ethic, leadership and hockey IQ and is now the Director of Player Development with the Detroit Red Wings. His passion and knowledge to develop young hockey players is very evident at his hockey school as he demonstrates championship qualities every day. Transferring his championship habits from his playing days with the Red Wings to all the participants is his number one priority and this is what separates his hockey school from most. Being the first player ever from Newfoundland and Labrador to hoist the Stanley Cup was the highlight of his career and now through developing skills in his participants he hopes that one day another player from Newfoundland and Labrador will experience hoisting the Stanley Cup like he did.
