I was introduced to Patrick when Ryan was nearing the end of his senior year in Prep School. As a goalie he was facing a tough track to play on past Prep School. He got injured during his senior year and missed valuable playing time and was not getting any firm college offers. Soon after Ryan signed on with Patrick to be his advisor, Patrick was able to get a few junior teams to take a look. He also made sure Ryan attended the right showcases to be seen. Ryan will be playing in the EHL in the upcoming season. This wouldn’t be possible without Patrick’s help.
Patrick, when I was first introduced to you and the services you offered, I’ll be honest, I was a bit skeptical. I soon realized that navigating the ups and downs of the hockey world is some what of a daunting task, that I have very limited experience with. Your past personal and professional experiences have allowed you to do a fantastic job mentoring, motivating and guiding my son Cameron, academically and athletically on his journey to achieving his goal of playing hockey at collegiate level and beyond. The only thing that I wish was that we had met you and JDM sports sooner.
Sean & Jenn Turnbull
Jen and I would like to thank you for all of the hard work that you and the JDM team put in for our son Jordin. We are very appreciative of the opportunity’s you have provided Jordin and the confidence that you gave him to take the next step. We feel very fortunate to have you assisting Jordin with accomplishing his goals.

Since meeting and subsequently signing on with Patrick Schaefer and JDM consulting Connors academic and hockey plans look brighter and more in focus. We now realize that his future endeavors will include junior hockey at a high level followed by an appropriate college experience that will emphasize both high academics and hockey. I would recommend and have recommended JDM and Patrick to people I care about because they care about their clients.
“Dave I would like to thank you along with Betty and Matthew for your services rendered. You have worked tirelessly in your quest to find Matthew a team to play for that meets our families needs and expectations. From the other people that I know that you represent, they are also pleased with your professionalism as well. We would also like the fact that you are always available to discuss certain issues or concerns that we may have. In the future should you have a client with any concerns, please feel free to use our family as a reference. You have helped us immensely over the years. Thanks again!”
“Dave has been a very important part in my success as a hockey player and has the ability to help any hockey player, younger or older, reach their goals. His knowledge of the game on and off the ice is crucial in the pursuit of any players success.”
“I started working with Dave at the end of my senior year in a tough situation. I didn’t have a lot on the table, but within a week of working with him he had already talked to a handful of teams, and was getting interest. His connections and experience helped me make the jump. Without his help it might not have been possible.”
“I worked with Dave early in my hockey career and I can honestly say that he is one of the hardest working advisors in the business. He will work tirelessly to find his players the best fit for their needs and goals. He has been all around the hockey world for a long time and has numerous contacts at every level..” –
“I’ve known Dave Maciuk for 15 years of my hockey career. All the way from Squirt hockey in Chicago to now; playing professionally over in Europe. I can’t think of anyone more influential in my development throughout those years. Dave is extremely well educated in all facets of the game and someone you can count on that will fight for you. While at the University of Notre Dame, Dave consistently kept in contact and as soon as I graduated he produced.” –
Once again, I just wanted to thank you for your professional efforts, and more importantly to the personalized services you provided to my son. Look forward to working with you in future.
Lastly, it is not the same for every player, but Dave and John’s knowledge is only overshadowed by their passion. Any opportunity to be advised by them is an opportunity you cannot afford to pass up. The growing resources of Dave and John will give players the opportunity to reach the highest level of play they strive for.”
John and Karol Stolarz
“Thanks for all your help over the past few years. The process for goalies sure does suck!”
I still live in Sault Ste. Marie while David has made Chicago his home for years now. I do not make it a habit of recommending advisors/consultants/agents to players and their families. But David is an exception to the rule. David Maciuk is the only representative who I recommend to players and their parents. Period.”
