Yesterday a great friend of myself and the MindPuck team was in a terrible car accident on the 401. Trevor Koverko, a student at the Richard Ivey School of Business and Founder of eProf.com, was airlifted to hospital after his car was hit by a truck on the highway. Trevor’s condition has reportedly been upgraded to stable from critical – our thoughts and prayers are with Trev and his family right now as they brave through these trying times. This tragedy could not have happened to an individual with a brighter future, and we can only hope that this future is not compromised in any way and Trev makes a speedy recovery.
Trev is an exceptional member of both the academic and hockey community. An Ivey entrepreneur, he is the founder and driving force behind eProf.com – eProf has laid the groundwork for the next generation of education online. The site has recently launched and is already well on its way to being an amazing success.
Prior to launching eProf, Trev played 4 years in the Ontario Hockey League and was drafted to the New York Rangers in 2005. Trev is a force at 6’3″ 205 – a skilled defenseman with great hands, a heavy shot and even heavier fists.
I have had the privilege to work with Trev and play hockey with him for Ivey. He is a talented individual, a hilarious personality and a good friend. I am confident that he will come back stronger than ever, but for now “The Kid” could use the support of those around him.
Trevor was a member of the Attack from 2004-2006 which saw him suit up in 104 games while collecting a goal and fifteen assists.
Trevor, his family and friends are in our thoughts at this time and we wish Trevor a full and speedy recovery.
