In this episode of the #CLP we sit down with Winnipeg Jets number 55 and amazing human being, Mark Scheifele. We met Mark 5 years ago when he walked into our gym on the edge of cracking the Jets lineup. Since then, we have had the pleasure of watching him develop into the person and player he is today. Fresh off a career-best season, top 10 finish in scoring and successful Kidsport charity event Mark took the time to discuss his relationship with hockey, why he believes it’s his obligation to give back and   Don’t forget to rate and review.
