MONTREAL – Brendan Gallagher has always played with heart, but he has a number of former coaches to thank for the other aspects of his game.

Gallagher considers his father Ian — who was his head coach during his early years on the ice, and later his strength and conditioning coach with the Vancouver Giants — to be one of his major influences growing up. But the gutsy forward’s list of role models extends beyond family ties.
