A Kitchener kid who got to step behind an OHL bench with his hometown team. But it was not a direct path. Paul Fixter was destined for law school when a coaching opportunity came up with the OHL's Cornwall Royals and once the coaching bug bit, there was no turning back. The path led Fixter to the NHL, where he worked with some of the biggest stars in the game…and won two Stanley Cups. The story of how he landed his first NHL job is as funny as it is entertaining, and Fixter is even laughing a little now when he looks back at an incident while coaching in Sudbury that he regrets to this day. He's frank, he's honest, and it's a wonder he hasn't found a place back in the game somewhere.
