Opposing goaltenders and defencemen aren’t the only challenge Vause has overcome to pursue a career in pro hockey. He has Type-1 diabetes, which he manages with an insulin pump. Vause also has to pay strict attention to his diet because he’s allergic to eggs, milk, gluten, peas and beans.
Trained in graphic design, one of his favorite hobbies is designing specialty hockey jerseys including two that will be used this season by the Swift Current Broncos, a junior team that he played for previously.
Last Saturday, Nov. 22, the Flames wore special camouflage-style jerseys for Military Appreciation Night that were auctioned off afterward to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project, an effort that raised $16,594.
Naturally, as one of the team’s more popular players, Vause’s jersey sold for several hundred dollars.
Vause split time last year between Idaho of the ECHL and the Texas Stars, the 2014 Calder Cup champions. Now, he couldn’t be happier than to be part of the Flames organization where he’s been a major contributor to Adirondack’s rise up the standings this month.
“I was always a Flames fan growing up so it’s pretty exciting,” he said. “It’s a great league. To be competing at this level is a great feeling.”
