Ben is an avid fan and supporter of both hockey and the military, despite having never officially participated in either. His hockey roots are limited to rudimentary boot hockey on the ponds of his family farm in NW Wisconsin. His appreciation for the military stems from his father's participation in the Air Force in Vietnam and brother's participation in the Army in Operation Desert Storm.
Ben and his wife, Kari, currently reside in Stillwater, MN with their three children.
