Zach Lamppa and Tom Chorske, the Hockey Dads proudly announced today they have broken three hockey-related World Records.

Proudly sponsored by Gray Duck Spirits, the Hockey Dads are on a mission to remind us all that hockey should be fun and positive. The newest records set recently include the World Record for the longest goal of 315 feet (Chorske), the longest backhand pass of 305 feet (Lamppa) and the longest save by a six year old of 320 feet (Judd Lamppa).

“These are benchmarks we set to inspire hockey players of all ages to try and achieve great things while making it fun and positive,” said Zach Lamppa, Founder and World Record Holder of the Hockey Dads. “We want this to become a movement to let people, especially kids, find the fun in perfecting their hockey skills."

In November of 2018 Lamppa and Chorske, a Minnesota Hockey Legend set the World Record for longest hockey pass of 904 feet on the pristine early ice of Lake of the Isles in Minneapolis. Lamppa who grew up in Virginia, MN, and now resides in Detroit Lakes, MN said that record was just the start.

“Now that a few records have been set we are looking forward to seeing youth hockey players, moms, dads and even grandparents take aim at these numbers,” said Lamppa. “Records are made to be broken and we want to provide an avenue for lovers of hockey to make their mark.”

The Hockey Dads are encouraging players of all ages from all over the world to try their hand at breaking these recently set records and submit their video to the Hockey Dads website. Sponsor partners Gray Duck Spirts and The Minnesotan, a lifestyle apparel company will team up to recognize any new world record submitted.    

“For both players and parents. It’s all about having a positive attitude in the game of hockey,” said Lamppa. “There are so many pressures we all face. The pressure of making a team, the pressure of getting ice time and the pressure of winning games. We want to create something that is simply about getting on the ice as a family and just find the simple enjoyment of the game.”
