Jesse grew up a Leaf fan, and as a buddy of Max Domi, the son of Toronto enforcer Tie, he attended many games where the brothers got to meet some NHL players at that time.

He was small, approximately 5-foot-6, during midget hockey, but he was tough, partly due to his experience in box lacrosse.

Jesse, who played four years as a junior but never got promoted, was impressed by his brother’s handling of discouragement and rejection. 

Nick has only shared his brother’s photo on his social media accounts. However, it is known that he is married and has a son whose name is Leo.

Paul is in a relationship with Janessa, whom he met at a Boots & Hearts music festival. However, there is not much information about her fiancée.

His family has supported him in every step by his family, and the whole family celebrates his success.

Paul always told himself that if he made it in hockey and had a platform, he would do something to help. So, he started a “Points By Paul” program, first in the OHL, then with the Senators in the NHL.

The campaign provided $150 to the Royal Ottawa Foundation for Mental Health for every point Paul scored this year, and the Senators Community Foundation matched each donation.
