NHL Network Analyst Kevin Weekes is Today’s Honoree

No5holeWith over 14 years of professional hockey experience, including 11 NHL seasons, goaltender Kevin Weekes brings his unique knowledge to the NHL Network as an analyst on its nightly flagship program, NHL On The Fly, as well as a contributor to NHL.com.

A second-round draft pick of the Florida Panthers in 1993, Weekes played 348 regular-season games with the Panthers, Vancouver Canucks, Tampa Bay Lightning, Carolina Hurricanes, New York Rangers and New Jersey Devils. Weekes helped lead the Carolina Hurricanes to the Stanley Cup Final in 2002, and is the Hurricanes’ all-time leader in playoff goals-against average and save percentage.

As one of the NHL’s most charitable players, the Toronto-native is dedicated to numerous causes and initiatives throughout North America, including Sky’s the Limit, a unique initiative which benefits students in under-resourced communities by providing them with refurbished computers, as well as the Herbert Carnegie Future Aces Foundation, which assists youth and adults to attain the highest level of achievement within their capabilities.

In addition, Weekes is heavily involved in charitable work in his parents’ native Barbados, where he hosts the annual Kevin Weekes Celebrity Charity Golf Classic, which raises funds for youth charities in both Barbados and Toronto.

No5hole1Why Did Kevin Weekes start the  I Have No 5 Hole Clothing Line?

Ever since I was a child, I was always fascinated by goaltending and fashion. For me, the two went together both on and off of the ice, but make no mistake about it, the substance must balance the style.

Having played goal for 28 years, the ability to be creative with the design of my equipment is a process that I’ve always loved. In my current role as a TV analyst/broadcaster, fashion is at the forefront of my mind being in front of the camera. Out of my love for fashion and design IHaveNo5Hole Apparel was born.

While many companies are transactional, our approach is about connecting people, creating experiences with and for our customers, and helping to grow the game in our unique way.

Our brand’s 3 pillars are centered around Goalies, Hockey/Sport and Lifestyle. Since our products can encompass one or a combination of the 3 pillars, our apparel line has something for everyone. From grassroots athletes, to urban professionals, influencers and hockey parents around the globe. We have something in our product range for every member of the family.

On any given day, you’ll see us at your local arenas, ballparks, football or soccer fields, as we love having that connectivity with our customers.

Currently, our entire design, printing and manufacturing is done locally and we’re proud to call our product 100% Canadian.
