Susan’s husband was born June 13, 1968 in Dunnville, Ontario; a small farming town on the north shore of Lake Erie about 45 miles west of the U.S. border at Buffalo, N.Y. His father worked in a nearby steel factory and his mother was an X-ray technician at a hospital in Hamilton, almost an hour’s drive away.
He attended both the University of Windsor and the University of Detroit and holds a law degree. He was the 237th player taken in the 1988 draft by the Toronto Maple Leafs and spent three years as a minor league forward with the Milwaukee Admirals of the International Hockey League.

He did get to spend more time with his wife and three children after being fired instead, he helped coach his two sons’ hockey teams.
Then in May, DeBoer was an assistant under McLellan for Canada, which won the IIHF World Championship in the Czech Republic.

She told about being married to a NHL coach: “His wheels start spinning and it’s August and you know that training camp is around the corner and he’s off and in a different world.”
