Life after hockey with Kypreos, Hirsch and Armstrong


Our goal is to support and develop customized, relevant programs and services that address the unique post-game and off-season challenges that elite athletes face. Below is our current portfolio of services. If you have any ideas about other services we could offer please tell us your ideas.

Who Can Register?

Very simply, if you have played at least one game in the NHL and are a registered member of the NHL Alumni or NHL Players Association you can register.

If you’d like to determine your eligibility please contact Wendy McCreary at the NHL Alumni office.

Why Participate?

A typical BreakAway Client has been out of the NHL for 9 years and out of the professional game for 6 years. Our clients are most likely employed in a medium to small business or a professional services environment. Furthermore, overall our clients are happy with their lives and have likely enjoyed a successful hockey career, on average playing 433 NHL games.

The rationale to participate in the program varies from client to client. Our clients range from NHLA members who have played 1 game in the NHL to clients who played more that 1600 games. The reasons for joining the program are as varied as our clients.

Ultimately, this program has been created by the NHL Alumni to provide its members with a competitive edge breaking into business or broadcasting, advancing up the corporate ladder or transitioning into life after professional hockey.

The resources offered to you through BreakAway are designed to help you achieve the outcomes that are important and relevant to you and your development. Our programs have been created with the assistance of active and former NHL athletes and are continually being refined to make the experiences and outcomes better for our clientele.

If you are envisioning a different future for yourself, see how the BreakAway program can assist you in reaching your goals. For more program information please contact Wendy McCreary.
