Hockey can be a very violent sport. Fights break out on the ice at least a few times per game. In fact, if the walls of the penalty box were made of anything fragile, they would probably have to replaced quite frequently. With so much violence, you’d wonder about a police officer who plays hockey as a side hobby. On the other hand, police officers are likely to witness more violence each day than the average person, so maybe it’s fitting that a cop would need a sport like hockey to unleash the rage that he’s forced to hold in at the scene of every crime.
Henri Degre is a former police officer who plays hockey at Hot Shots Arena in Pennsylvania. The arena provides a variety of opportunities for sports lovers like Henri Degre to engage in recreational sports, including soccer, in-line hockey, flag football, basketball and even aerobics. Although he’s no longer a cop today, Henri Degre, like anyone else, needs some occasional time to do the things he enjoys (like playing hockey or fishing in the Salmon River.)
Henri Degre is the GM of product development with Mobile Concepts, a woman-owned company that manufactures vehicles and trailers primarily for law enforcement personnel. During the week, he develops custom vehicles that assist police officers, firefighters, veterinarians, crime scene investigators, Homeland Security officers, and even ordinary corporate citizens like you and me with everyday tasks. But when he is not working at Mobile Concepts he enjoys multiple hobbies as a hockey player, a stock car auto racing enthusiast and a fisherman on the Salmon River in Pulaski, NY. Henri Degre is what you might call “a Jack of all trades.”
Hot Shots arena is the perfect place for Henri Degre to perfect his slap shot, with leagues for adults and youth of all ages, at all levels. But make sure you know the rules of hockey and follow them to a T while you’re out there on the ice. Otherwise you might find that Henri Degre – former police officer and hockey enthusiast – is the one ushering you to the penalty box (though that’s probably better than being escorted into the back of his cop car.)
