Developing The Story: Pontus Aberg: One of the NHL's rare single fathers

Season 2, Episode 3,  Feb 13, 2020, 12:49 PM

In this episode, I'm speaking with Joshua Kloke, a writer who covers the Leafs and Toronto FC for The Athletic.

Joshua spent time with Maple Leafs prospect Pawn-tus EH-berg, whose climb up the hockey ladder is being made with an unusual twist. The 26-year-old forward from Sweden is one of the NHL's rare single fathers.

Professional hockey is often associated with a life spent on the road, isolated from family by the time commitments of being on a team. Aberg has found a balance. As he tells Joshua of his daughter: “She makes me happy.”
