Dion Phaneuf is a very famous Canadian hockey player. He was born in Edmonton, April 10, 1985. He is also a hockey player, to defend the honor of HC “Sherwood Park Crusaders”.
Phaneuf has enjoyed hockey since childhood. He likes how to play and watch games on television. As a child, he was a fan of the team, “Edmonton Oilers”. One particularly admired the way Wayne Gretzky plays, a little later he was filled and Scott Stevenson.
Dion Phaneuf was born into a close family, so his passion for hockey is supported by his parents. The boy’s father owns every winter ice skating rink in the yard of the house and works with his son, helping him with the training. Phaneuf Sr teaches young hockey players to play in strength, in a positive way, which is characteristic of this type of sport. Paul reiterated that his son was sometimes so powerful that the puck, sent his stick, punched the net.
But the skater boy’s mother taught him. Amber has been a great success in this business. In 1975, for example, she went from Prince Edward Island (from which she was born) in the Canadian game, to perform in the competition between skateboarding.
Dion Phaneuf was selected in 2000, the club “Red Deer rebel” (draft around the three choose ZHL). And in 2001 he made his first appearance. In the first season, he scored 17 points turned out, arguing that he played in 67 matches. As part of the playoffs for the Dion club spent 21 games and even got two assists.
The successes are getting better next season. He scored 30 points, earning them 16 enemies in an abandoned door washer and 14 assists. It was largely thanks to him in “Red Deer” and filming that season (for the second time in a row) to reach the final. Dion Phaneuf was surprised by his play. Everyone who follows his style, attention marks great physical properties and versatility. After all, Canada turned out to play not only for protection but also for attack.
For the first time around the draft pick in 2003, my special attention was given to Darryl Sutter, who was the general manager of HC “Calgary Flames”. In the 2003/2004 season, the young men scored 43 points in 62 matches, making him the best ZHL defender. And the following year, he scored 56 points in the 55 (!) Games, and this success led him once again to the current title. He twice entered the National CHL All-Stars and ZHL and Prospects published Hockey boy acknowledged the best player in the CHL for 2004 and 2005.
The first goal with the opponents he posted five weeks after his debut. In general, during the season, he scored 49 points, making him the third in the history of rookie defender NHL to score 20 goals.
Next season, the results are almost 50 points, including 17 and 33 assists washing machines. Later, he was first invited to attend the All-Star game. In the 2007/2008 season, he signed a contract with “Calgary” for 6 years, and also set a personal record for most points (60).
A year later was unsuccessful. Only 47 points and 11 goals scored. But on ice, he spends a lot of time – an average of 27 minutes per game, and this – 4th in the rankings. Poor results are inexplicable injuries. Dion in the season suffered a thigh injury, and then another, and broken a rib.
