STACY, Minn — Hockey is a lifestyle for those who grow up in Minnesota, and Jack Harvey, a native of Stacy, was no exception.

"It was around when I was 3 or 4, probably, as soon as my parents could put skates on me" Harvey said about how he got his start.

"I remember my parents telling me a story about how I wanted to quit in my first year, and they wouldn't let me. The reason I wanted to quit was because it was outdoors and it was so cold." he added.

The Chicago Steel forward and Boston University commit is grateful his parents didn't let him quit.
