Ryan Purvis was a well-rounded athlete growing up. Being drafted into the Ontario Hockey League to the Owen Sound Attack, Ryan knew he would pursue an athletic career in hockey. Despite not lacing up the skates for the attack, he played junior ‘A’ hockey throughout Ontario (OJHL) and the Maritimes (MHL) within Canada. Purvis then committed to play for the Badgers at Brock University (USPORT) where he went on to attain his degree in Kinesiology. Ryan now focuses on the balance between both physical and mental health, while also advocating for cannabis (and cannabinoids) as a healthier alternative.
