Testimonials for Don kirnan

Testimonial for: DON KIRNAN

Don Kirnan’s knowledge and experience in player development is unparalleled. He was the pioneer of player development in New York and was the #1 reason so many players from Central New  York have made it to the NHL. I owe my 4 years of NCAA hockey and entire 17 year pro hockey career to him.
