Glen Sonmor-from player to coach, a life changing eye removing accident

submitted by mnhockeymag on 12/18/13 1

In this episode, Scott Tiffany sits down with Glen Sonmor who discusses the life changing event, the loss of his eye after being hit by a puck from a team mate. Playing for Cleveland, Glen is in front of the net, screening the goalie, when his team mate accidentally shoots high, getting the puck square in his eye. Glen's accident happened 4 days before the birth of his baby girl, and after having his eye removed, and after sitting in the hospital wondering what he ever would do, Glen gets a call from John Marriucci who arranged for him to take over coaching at the U of M with the Freshman team.
