Brent: I was playing for the Carolina Hurricanes in Raleigh, N.C., and I attended the Dixie Deer Classic in 2012 with my good friend, a wildlife biologist named Greg Batts. Eva was a last-minute addition to the deer show. Greg told me, “She’s Canadian. You should talk to her.” We didn’t speak a whole lot at the event, because she was busy. Afterwards, we kept in touch, mainly talking about hunting. It took about a year for me to convince her to go out on a date with me. Funny thing… right after I met her at the Deer Classic, I texted a friend that I was going to marry Eva Shockey.
