Flyers Glen Metropolit Says Love is All That Matters

09/17/2008 at 07:00 AM ET

Growing up in poverty and, at times, foster care has had an undeniable, understandable impact on hockey player Glen Metropolit. The 34-year-old forward for the Philadelphia Flyers says that regardless of the upheaval of his youth he "always felt loved" — asking "what more could you want?" Although his own children — 6-year-old Alivia, 4-year-old Max and 2-year-old Esther — are enjoying an upbringing that is vastly different than their father’s, Glen says that the love remains the same.

"I love my kids so much that I can’t give them enough affection. My wife tells me I need to work on the discipline part of it. That’s tough for me."

Alivia, Max and Esther are Glen’s children with wife Michlyn.

I really like the way they’ve spelt their eldest daughter’s name, Alivia is very cute and an unusual spin on Olivia.
