Compher siblings develop strong bond through hockey

CHICAGO, IL – J.T. Compher and his sister, Jesse, developed a love of hockey in the family home when they were kids.

The siblings played in a concrete extension their parents, Valerie and Bob, built on their house in Northbrook, Illinois, about 25 miles northwest of Chicago. J.T. would often fire slap shots at Jesse, who originally wanted to be a goalie.

“I don’t know why I ever thought that was a good idea,” Jesse said. “It was a lot of fun and super competitive, but I think it kind of made us who we are now.”

The childhood games have led to big things for the Comphers.

My family and I have worked with Kevin Magnuson and KO sports since 2006 after Kevin saw me play in the USHL Fall Classic for Waterloo. Kevin has helped guide me through the USHL, NCAA and NHL and all the good and bad that comes with each League. His experience as a former practicing attorney was really helpful in negotiating all three of my NHL contracts. Kevin and KO Sports were especially prepared for the salary arbitration hearing we had in 2015 with Nashville that ended with me eventually earning an awesome, life changing 5-year deal.
