Video – Phil Housley-cut as under aged squirt, moves to Squirt A team and is MVP, all in the same year


Scott Tiffany with Minnesota Hockey sits down with NHL seven time All Star Phil Housley, in a one on one visit discussing Phil’s hockey career.  In this episode, we turn back the clock to the very beginning, with his early days of playing hockey in South Saint Paul.  Phil speaks fondly of his fathers influence, his rec hockey days, and playing in the South Saint Paul Program with the likes of legendary Pee Wee coach George Powers, Paul Moen and his father Leroy all having influence on Phil as his youth coach.   Highlights include his being cut as a squirt, only to be brought back up several weeks later, and then becoming the Most Valuable Player of that team.  Housley also discusses his days as a high school player and the influence of Doug Woog, his high school coach, who moved him back to defense as a Freshman.     To see the video click this link.   Phil Housley early years   [Vimeo id =” (53111842)”
