Home Ice a smart investment

Most of what Shannon Briske learned about life he learned from hockey, like the importance of teamwork, commitment and perseverance. Now a minor hockey coach, father of three and Senior Financial Advisor at Assante Wealth Management, he attributes much of his success to his experiences as a student athlete with the ‘Dogs’.

A founding member and past chair of the ‘Off the Leash Luncheon’, Shannon, pictured with his wife Jill, has been involved with the Huskies alumni group since graduating from the U of S with an honours degree in finance in 2000 (photo: Dave Stobbe).

“The relationships and core values that were instilled in me as a student athlete remain today,” he said. “It’s important to give back to the program and community that was the platform for building such a strong foundation for my success.”

That’s why Shannon and Jill Briske have generously donated $200,000 to the Home Ice Campaign – they are committed  to supporting a much-needed twin-ice facility for the Huskies and minor hockey players, providing athletes with the opportunities to develop as both players and people.

The Briskes are pleased that their contribution will help the community. Mr Briske said, “This facility will touch so many people in other sports and will be a venue that everyone can truly be proud of.”
