Born and raised in Saskatoon, Christian Magnus love for game of hockey started in his early years when he spent countless hours playing on ponds and ODR’s. He played his minor hockey in the city of bridges, where he caught the eye of the Swift Current Broncos, who drafted him 9th overall in the first round of the WHL draft. Having played as a 16-year-old in the WHL, he spent five years in junior hockey, accumulating over 300 games played between the WHL and SJHL. He then took his WHL scholarship earnings to the University of Regina where he suited up for the men’s hockey team. After five more years, “Mags” graduated and retired from hockey with a bachelor’s degree in kinesiology.
Christian joined the Visionary team in the summer of 2022. He understands the grind that comes with climbing the hockey ranks and has a deep passion for the game. Christian is excited to be working with student-athletes and wants to help hockey players be successful on the ice, but also in life. “Hockey was very generous to me, the experiences gained, the lessons I learned, the people you meet, and the places you get to go. Not too many people get to experience what I have, and now I get to pay that forward”.
