Hockey players are rising stock on Wall Street

BY foxsports • June 18, 2015

There is life after hockey, and many former players are proving that skaters can have both brawn and brains by working on Wall Street after their hockey days are over. 

Business Insider recently published a list of former professional and collegiate players who now make their livings on Wall Street, and there are some familiar NHL names on there. 

Former New York Rangers goalie Mike Richter did not have to move far to find his post-hockey career. The Stanley Cup champion attended Yale after retiring from the NHL and became a founding partner of a $100 million private-equity fund called Environmental Capital Partners. 

Fans of the US Olympic "Miracle On Ice" team will recognize the name Rob McClanahan, a former forward who now works in institutional equity sales trading at Craig-Hallum Capital Group. Dave Silk, another member of the 1980 Olympics team, works at Cadence Capital, a stock-investing firm. 

Silk is also one of many former Boston Bruins players to make the jump from the ice to Wall Street. In addition to Silk, the list of former Bruins in the industry includes Gord Kluzak, David Emma, Barry Pederson, Ian Moran, Nevin Markwart and the legendary Derek Sanderson.
