15+ Years experience as a goaltender
20+ Years experience playing hockey


Jean-Michel started playing hockey at the age of 4  where he played as a forward for several seasons. After trying a few games as a goaltender, he decided that being a goaltender was his natural position. The first year he was a full-time goaltender confirmed that he was playing the right position. The following year, he was retained in a competitive team, besting a few more experienced goaltenders. He went on to play competitively for a few years eventually playing as a goaltender and defenceman for his high school team. During his high-school he played in the "tournois franco-ontarien" (a tournament between all french ontario high-school hockey teams) as starting goaltender.

After high school, he continued playing hockey in various men's leagues. He now plays an average of 2 games a week during both the winter and summer and is a goalie coach for Phil Martin's Goalie Academy in Ottawa.

Behind the Logo

We have been getting a few questions concerning our logo. What does it all mean? Why is it like that? Well it's all simple really. We wanted to have a logo that would incorporate hockey with a shortened version of our name. This eventually led to an acronym with hockey sticks used to form the T, and a hockey helmet sitting on top of the R.

We originally though of THR (The Hockey Resource) but since this is an online website, we started calling the project The Hockey online Resource (THoR).  This obviously brought up relations to Thor, the mythical norse god which in our opinion would make quite the power forward.

Due to this resemblance we decided to add wings to the hockey helmet (typical of modern Thor illustrations including the Marvel version of the character) and a hockey puck to represent the o. The puck can be seen as part of the acronym or not. Some interpret the logo as The Hockey Resource (THR) others as The Hockey online Resource (THoR), in the end, there is no right or wrong way!

For the record, it was all Stéphane's work so if you like it, give him a thumbs up!


Here are some different versions of the logo used throughout the internet.
