Paul Kariya when he was on Anaheim. After that it was Matt Cooke (while paired with the Sedins) and Jarome Iginla. I didn't really have any idols growing up besides hockey players.

These two played a huge role in my love for hockey growing up. In my later years when i got into hockey more and more, Markus Naslund, and Todd Bertuzzi were my hockey Idols. In the years after that i have really grew to really like Rick Rypien(RIP)Ryan Kesler, Kevin Bieksa, and Luongo.

it had to be done. Too bad both these players have had their name tarnished in one way or another.

Bill Gates, especially after the DoJ fiasco and him stepping down and focusing more on Philanthropy. ALso for making technology and computing mainstream and accesible, and really figuring out that it was the software that made computers unique.

William Boeing, one of my aviation heros. Made flying a normal thing, just like driving a car or travelling by train. He also had a run in with the government, and even after 'leaving the game' so to speak, he came back even more determined to make his mark.

Markus Naslund. The reason why I got into hockey.

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins a little too recently. He's the same age, and he grew up only a couple of blocks down from where I live.

Jimmy Page was the guy who got me interested in playing guitar (there are guys I like better now).

Bryan Trottier was my first sports hero, along with Jim Kelly and Rusty, "Le Grand Orange" Staub.
Orland Kurtenbach and Dennis Kearns had just been torched 8-1 by the Habs, but they still took time to come out to meet us, some fellow BC boys who were playing hockey in Montreal. THAT"S what being a Canuck is!

I always have looked up to my mom more than I did any other figure

But I've always been a pop culture sort of guy, so I had a lot of fictional characters I unsuccessfully tried to draw from as a kid:

Obi Wan Kenobi
Han Solo
Charlie Bucket
Indiana Jones

As far as sports figures go, I only remember ever "looking up to" Lemieux and Michael Jordan, but I do remember admiring Joe Carter and John Olerud, haha

Don't remember any early ones, maybe my parents, but my current one would be Legendary freestyle skier JP Auclair.

Started the best Ski company Armada Skis and is the best big mountain freestyle skier.

My idol was always Marcus Naslund I always used to wear #19 in hockey and I loves the way he played and the way he acted off the ice. Hes such a class act.
