He was just chasing beautiful ladies instead. He came back to the ice when he went to university in Tokyo with the Waseda Titans for 3 years. After that he played in Tokyo with the Vanguards for a year. In 2016, he moved to Vancouver, Canada, played hockey in a Beer league. There he truly learned what ice hockey was about, community. After this journey, he came back to Tokyo and built the social ice hockey community called "In The Box Hockey" with his best friend Johnny Andrews!
