Mike Fisher’s hometown of Peterborough, Ontario overflowed with kids like him who dreamed of playing hockey in the NHL. He achieved that dream at the age of nineteen when the Ottawa Senators selected him in the second round of the 1998 draft. But he never felt so empty. In 2014, Mike shared his story in an I Am Second White Chair Film, opening up about how he discovered real purpose in life only when he turned his attention towards a relationship with God.
