After that, he went on to play goaltender for Haverhill High School, UMass Lowell, and the ECHL.

His mother claims that the pair make a modest living and try their best to make whatever needs Jordan and his brother have.

Jordan’s father would drive both of his sons to wherever they needed to go play hockey in his old van, whose speedometer now shows over 50,000 km. 

His parents have always taught him to remain humble, continue working hard, and trust that things would work out.

They believed that as long as he stayed on that path, things would work out, and finally, after all the years of hard work, it seems like it has.
