Scott Gomez on The Cam & Strick Podcast

There are literally just a few people in the history of civilization to grow up in Alaska and make it all the way to the National Hockey League. Scott Gomez is one of the rare to accomplish the feat.  Gomez, a two-time Stanley Cup winner, has a long career, one that spanned more than 1,000 NHL games. He won his first Cup as a rookie and though a portion of his focus quickly shifted to the business side of the game, Gomez would win another Stanley Cup in addition to representing USA hockey in the Olympics. He tells some hilarious stories, including the time he made a young Cam Janssen cry during a team flight. His career would take him to the New York Rangers after signing a monster (at the time) free-agent contract. He'd also wind up in Montreal where he met the low point of his career as a player. He went 60 games, spread out over two seasons, without scoring a goal. How did he handle the daily criticism? What's the one piece of advice he learned from Joe Nieuwendyk and Pat Burns? Why did Current Minnesota Wild All-Star Zach Parise only hang out one time with Cam? Did he like coaching, and what was life like growing up in Alaska? Just how Alaskan is he? Get all the answers on this super entertaining episode of the Cam and Strick Podcast!
