10 Questions: Brian Propp

Brian Propp started his National Hockey League career with the Philladelphia Flyers and spent time with the Boston Bruins and Minnesota North Stars as well. He was a member of Team Canada during several tournaments, including the 1992 World Ice Hockey Championship. Propp played in five NHL All-Star Games and is a member of the Flyers Hall of Fame.

If you ever get a chance, take the time to learn how the famous "Guffaw" started.

More recently, he is a vice president for the Judge Group, a staffing, training, vendor management and business technology solutions company.
