Change is the indisputable truth we are all facing. Everything will change. The question is, why and how will you change? By chance? By force? Or would you like some say about why and how you will change?
At 18 years old, Doug Smith was chosen 2nd overall in the NHL Entry Draft. He would play that first year for the Los Angeles Kings as their youngest player ever and be the only player on the Kings that year to play all league and all playoff games. In those same playoffs, the LA Kings would set a record that holds today. It is called, The Miracle on Manchester and is the greatest comeback in NHL Playoff History.
“The next 11 years of my life was defined by hockey successes, hockey failures, my lack of awareness and the brutal psychological impact caused by the culture of a professional collision sport. Finally, in professional game #607, at age 29, I shattered my spine in a high speed, head first collision with the end boards and I would wake up in ICU a quadriplegic. Change for me, happened in an instant.”

“After hearing Doug Smith speak I went full force into working towards my own dreams. People told me that I would never own my own gym ... on the 15th of October, I move in as the owner of the Phaze1 Fitness Centre. I am going to take on some medically releasing soldiers and pass on the same encouragement I got from seeing and hearing Doug at Algonquin College. Thank you so very much.”
