Do you know who is the Colorado Eagles assistant coach who strips down during a game? Well yes that would be Greg Pankewicz, who did just that either as a sign of protest or was he training to join a strip club ’cause he was throwing all of his clothes on the ice rink! Would you like to know more about that? What about his biography? And certainly you want to see his stripping video right? Alright then so check out the rest of this story and you’ll discover it all and check out his photos and videos after the jump.
We all have seen coaches losing their temper when they disagree with the referees, which is just what caused Coach Pankewicz to strip from his clothes in the middle of the game. The game took place on Saturday night, when apparently he disagreed with the referee’s decision that got him infuriated, suddenly he began throwing things, followed by his jacket, shirt and shoes – it stopped when he was sent to the dressing room. Luckily it had a happy ending, not for him though he will be suspended for the rest of the season, but the Eagles won the game 5-1.
Looking back into Greg Pankewicz’s biography, we can tell you that he was born in Drayton Valley, a small town in Alberta, Canada on November 6, 1970 making him 40 years old. He got on his skates at a very tender age, hockey struck him while in high school – he had talent, discipline and determination to be a great player. By the time he was 20 years old he became the right-winger of Alberta Junior Hockey League’s (AJHL) Sherwood Park Crusaders, two years later he joined the Regina Pats followed by the Knoxville Cherokees n 1992 and the New Haven Senators in 1992.
Between 1993 and 1996 he played with the Ottawa Senators, P.E.I. Senators, Portland Pirates and the Chicago Wolves then from 1997 to 2000 he was playing for the Manitoba Moose, Calgary Flames, Manitoba Moose, Saint John Flames, Kentucky Thoroughblades, Calgary Flames and the Houston Aeros.
In 2001 he joined the Pensacola Ice Pilots, in 2003 with the Colorado Eagles and the Wilkes-Barre Penguins, he came back to Colorado for the 2004- 2005 season until his retirement as a hockey player in 2009, that same year he re-joined the Eagles but as their assistant coach and Chris Stewart as head coach. His jersey’s number 89 was retired from the team.
Aside from his professional info we can tell you that he got himself in trouble with the police back in Decemberof, 2008 when he was arrested for an alleged DUI, luckily he was released a little later. He and his lovely wife Charmaine (who used to or still works as a nurse) are the proud parents of their beautiful daughters Taylor (9 years old) and 5 year old Mackenna.
