Over his career, Sean has played professionally in 4 different cities throughout North America, as well as overseas in the United Kingdom. No matter what team he has  played for in his career, he has always been the face of the franchise, both on and off the ice.  Sean is a Three-Time AHL Man of the Year award winner, which is given to the player who has the greatest impact in his team’s community.  Additionally, Sean holds multiple professional hockey World Records. 
When others are asked about Sean as a person, you will get a resounding answer of him being an extremely nice, original and loyal person. He is know for being an "enforcer" on the ice, but to his own team, he will go down as one of best "teammates" to ever play the game.  
Sean will now be on a mission to bring the same intensity, toughness, loyalty and consistency to the WCM players and staff!
