Shark Tank Star Robert Herjavec Rescues Former Pro-Hockey Player & His Family


The sun was setting and the family was not in a boat meant to be on the water at night. They were out of gas and basically stranded.

Herjavec tied a rope to his jet ski and towed them back to safety. He posted a video about the incident on his Instagram, and Lawson’s wife also gave an online salute (see below).


Lawson played pro hockey for 12 seasons — the first seven in North American minor leagues and the rest in Russia, including two season in the country’s elite KHL. His best season was in 2002-03, when he led the the East Coast Hockey League’s Fort Wayne Komets to a division title.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
