Travis has been known to get into some good fights throughout his minor league career. He has fought with Dan Cloutier (been in the NHL), Scott Meyer (Hartford Wolfpack, 2002 playoffs), and Patrick Desrouchers (Springfield Falcons, 2000-2001 season). He was fined for that fight. Neil Little challenged Travis, and Travis didn't back down and ended up receiving a fine for leaving his crease even though the game had ended. Travis says that he has never lost a fight. I guess watching wrestling has paid off! He was also in a scuffle with Eddy Fehri, the goalie of the Cincinnati Mighty Ducks (1/4/04).
Travis was invited to Hartford's NHL camp while he was playing juniors.
He uses his height to cut down the angles. He is also fast on his feet.
When Travis was 17, he moved from his family's house near Ottawa to Windsor, Ontario to play junior hockey.
He played on the Windsor Spitfires with Jamie Storr. He played on the Lowell Lock Monsters with Roberto Luongo. He also backed up Luongo with the Florida Panthers for 1 game during the 2003-2004 season.
He worked with coach Bruce Boudreau for five straight seasons.

One of them is gray with white lettering and the other has gray and purple lettering. He used Louisville sticks when he played on Oshawa and Windsor. He used KOHO sticks on Windsor also. He used a black Sherwood with blue lettering when he played for Lowell.

When the Manchester Monarchs held their first charity dinner, Travis did the chicken dance with news reporter, Charlie Sherman. I would have loved to seen that! (March 2002). I went to the Monarchs 2nd charity dinner, and Travis sang Piano Man!
He was featured on the show, The Monarchs Insider twice. My web site was talked about the 2nd time he was on the show.
Travis set aside some time to visit 13 year-old Collin LaFlemme at his home in the summer of 2002. Collin has been diagnosed with Osteo Genesis Imperfecta, also known as brittle bone disease. Collin and his family are big Monarchs' fans, so I'm sure Travis coming over to his house was a big thrill for him. Travis really knows how to make people feel better.
When Travis was on the Mississippi Sea Wolves, they made a billboard with him on it.
Travis Scott Bobblehead Night was Dec. 20, 2002.
Best thing about being a hockey player: not having a normal life
Worst thing about being a hockey player: not having a normal life
The best thing about when he played in Manchester: the fans
He always wanted to be a professional hockey player.
Best goal scorer he's ever faced: Brett Hull
Favorite quote: "You must be lucky to be good."
