Owner and Coach, Troy Binnie
professional hockey player, NHL
Since I retired from playing professional hockey I have been actively coaching kids from all ages at an elite level of play. I have and always will be a Volunteer Coach, as my Coaches and mentors were as I grew up playing the game. I am here for the kids and to teach them about the game I love to play. It is an honour to work with so many young and talented individual children and youth.
Haliburton Hockey Haven is not just a summer camp. It is a place where your child has access to former NHL hockey professionals for guidance, direction, skill development, character building, and most importantly, your child will come home with knowledge and experience that will provide him/her with a stronger foundation of confidence to pursue life and their hockey dreams.

Glad to see HHH is still going after all these years! In the mid 60's I was with a group of young players that came up from Northbrook (Chicago area) . It was just after Bobby Orr's rookie year... he was 18 I think. Bobby revealed to us one of his skating secrets -- no socks under his skates! He said he could feel the ice better that way. I think both Phil and Tony Esposito were there that year, if my memory serves. So was Kenny Hodge. I remember Ron Ellis. While some of the players were using bends on their stick blades, I seem to recall that he still had a flat blade - better for strong backhanders, he said. You had some other big names up there to too, from Hawks, Bruins, (Was Bernie Parent there, too -- or was I dreaming?). During the weeks I was there, a good number of NHL stars just showed up to check things out and have fun. In fact, the NHL guys were having more fun than the kids. The pros were playing pranks on everybody... especially on the camp counselors. who would be scooped out of their bunks late at night and carried into the woods for an initiation ritual that involved black shoe polish. The ice drills were great. I gained some knowledge of the game and acquired some skills which you can only get from guys who played at the pro level. I'll never forget those weeks I spent up there. Thanks for the memories. S. Town Clearwater, FL
Hockey prodigy scores on a breakaway goal during Bruins pregame. Behind the back! NINE YEARS OLD. This is in a mini 1-on-1 tournament. Oliver Wahlstrom plays for the Portland Junior Pirate Pee-Wee Major 97s, a team of 12-year-old players based in Maine. Except Wahlstrom is JUST 9 YEARS OLD, playing up with older competition. One look at this goal, and you can see why. It also doesn't hurt that his father, Joakim Wahlstrom, was a 10-year veteran of the Swedish Elite League.
Meet your idols. Every session there are guest appearances by some of the NHLs best hockey players. Wayne Cowley Scarborough, Ontario native Wayne Cowley bounced around the minor pro leagues before he took to the Edmonton Oilers crease during the 1993-94 season. Cowley went from Colgate University to the International Hockey League where he spent parts of three seasons with the Salt Lake Golden Eagles, the minor league affiliate of the Calgary Flames, who had signed him to a free agent deal. This stint was followed by stops in the East Coast Hockey League, the American Hockey League and two tours of duty in Britain. In 1993 Cowley signed a free agent contract with the Edmonton Oilers, who gave him his NHL opportunity. "Hockey teaches you a lot of things," said Cowley, who played an NHL game, in 1993-94, making 35 saves between the pipes for the Edmonton Oilers. "It teaches you how to deal with people and with situations."

Hi guys, I just wanted to let you know that last week my son Zach had an absolutely fabulous time at your hockey camp in Minden. He was excited to go every day, and then to be able to get back to the lake after a great morning of hockey was so much fun that we said that we will be back next year for sure! Troy, I wish you the best of luck in growing the hockey school and returning it to its' former glory...you are well on your way! All the best, Jordan Levitt
