Liam Stewart, 20, is in his fourth and final season with the Spokane Chiefs. The 6-foot-1, 182-pound center was born in London and resides in Hermosa Beach, California. He scored his 15th goal of the season last Saturday, surpassing the previous best of 14 he scored in 2011-12.

Of all the opportunities Liam Stewart has had, the one he grabbed and held on to with an unmistakable passion is hockey. “The atmosphere around the room, stepping on the ice every day, I just love it,” the Spokane Chiefs’ rookie forward said. “I love scoring. I love the aggressiveness of it. It’s just a lot of fun. And it’s different from what both my parents did.” According to Stewart, his dad is a soccer guy and his mom is a rugby fan. That would be rock music icon Rod Stewart, who is from England, and supermodel Rachel Hunter, who is from New Zealand. They divorced in 2006. “I’m privileged to have parents like that,” their son said. “I’ve traveled the world, (but) I never thought of myself different than anyone in the room. I’ve never been too cocky about it, or talked about it”/Dave Trimmer, SR. More here. (AP file photo: Rod Stewart and Holly Hunter)
