Blue Line Hockey Club About us

Blue Line Hockey Club

Who are they anyway?

Founded in 2018 by Pat Sullivan, the Blue Line Hockey Club started out as a group of hockey fans sitting around our trucks during intermission and talking about the game we were watching. Each of us have our own unique sports history, and more importantly stories to go with it... We're all Canton Golden Bear hockey alums. Hope you enjoy our friendly banter and occasional discussions that could cover professional to college to amateur hockey! You never know what you're going to get with this group of guys!

Starting on the wing - The Captain, Pat Sullivan!

Starting on the wing - Derek Hetu!
Your all around sports guru

Derek Hetu was born in Fayetteville, NC. By the time Derek was 3 years old he had moved to the small northern NY town of Canton, NY where he was raised by his mother and grandmother. Derek was involved in many sports growing up including soccer, baseball, golf and hockey. He began playing Canton Minor Hockey by the age of 5. Like his fellow podcasters he became a member of the Canton Golden Bears high school hockey team playing for three years. Derek was a member of the 1997 NYS Division 1 high school championship team. Derek scored the game winning goal in the semi final game to get the Golden Bears to the championship where he again netted the game winner to bring home a state title. All this with a broken right wrist!!! (due to a cheap shot in practice earlier that season from Rob Peters! Thanks Pete!) This was Cantons first ever NYS Division 1 hockey title. He was named to the All Tournament Team. Both the 1997 and 1998 hockey teams were later enshrined in the Canton Golden Bear Hall of Fame and New York State High School Hall of Fame. Derek went on to play college hockey at SUNY Morrisville and finished off his college education at SUNY Potsdam. Derek also later returned to the Canton high school hockey team years down the road to volunteer as an assistant coach.

Today Derek resides in Canton with his wife Morgan, son Hudson and has a baby girl Bria! He is the CEO of an Independent Insurance Agency. He enjoys golfing and watching and attending all types of sporting events. He is a HUGE fan of the Kansas City Chiefs.
