Former Hartford Whaler depth defenseman has a new job. He's doing colour commentary for Quinnipiac University hockey games.
That in itself is not as interesting as the process of how it all came about. The New Haven Register has a great piece on how he purposely has ignored the game for much of 18 years and how he stumbled upon Quinnipiac's Life After Hockey program.
I particularly enjoyed this paragraph:
"But, Kotsopoulos says, there’s one difference between preparing to play and preparing to go in front of the camera. He was never this terrified. Of anything. Not for Wayne Gretzky in his prime. Not for the 1981 Campbell Conference finals against the New York Islanders. Not even to trade punches with Bob Probert, the best hockey fighter of all time."
