Fans will get an exclusive look at Erik’s hometown of Orleans, Ontario to learn more about his family, background, and youth hockey experiences. The show will feature interviews with Erik’s parents, Wayne and Donna, his sister Chantal, and his 15-year-old brother Dennis, who is an aspiring hockey player himself. Erik will reflect on the impact of his brother’s battle with leukemia, and his subsequent bone marrow transplant, which saved Dennis’ life. These experiences helped Erik mature well beyond his years.
