I’ve been lucky to conduct a lot of e-mail interviews during the course of my three seasons at Kukla’s Korner.
Today, I bring to you an e-mail interview with Shawn McKenzie, the son of the hockey insider Bob McKenzie and the brother of AHLer Mike McKenzie. It is a terrific honor to have now interviewed three of the four members of the great McKenzie hockey family.
Shawn was kind enough to take time out of his busy schedule to tell us about how he got into hockey, his involvement with The Fourth Period lifestyle hockey magazine and web site as well as his part in his father’s book.
PH: How did you get into hockey?
SM: If I didn’t like hockey I probably would have been traded for future considerations. Being born into my family it was less of a choice and more a way of life. When I was born, my Dad was Editor In Chief of The Hockey News and my older brother Mike was already playing. When the rest of your family is so passionate about something you want to be just like them. But let’s be honest hockey isn’t a hard thing to love. It’s such an amazing sport that I quickly became passionate too.
