Top Draft would not be where it is today without this man. With four grandsons and two nephews working at TDH, Red Sullivan has been an inspiration to us all.
The former NHL veteran epitomized class, character and work ethic - essential components of TDH today. With grandsons Ryan Treacy, Dennis Treacy, Connor Treacy, Kelly Sullivan and Shane Sullivan, and nephews Steve Sullivan and Paul Fleming at the helm of Top Draft, we have all looked up to the elder Sullivan for guidance, leadership and inspiration over the years.
After a successful 12 year NHL playing career that included the captaincy of the New York Rangers, Red moved on to become the Head Coach of the Rangers, Pittsburgh Penguins and Washington Capitals, before settling in as a long-time NHL Scout with the Philadelphia Flyers, Boston Bruins and NHL Central Scouting.
A true professional through-and-through, Red inspired us all at Top Draft with his professionalism, hard work (on and off the ice), and his ability to identify talent. Our own development work at the NHL level and scouting positions in Major Junior are a direct result of the leadership, mentorship, and inspiration we received from the late, great George "Red" Sullivan.
