Former NHL hockey player and past Battle of the Blades competitor (Season 2) and Season 4 judge, Philip Joseph "P.J." Stock is a popular figure in Canadian sports media.

Never drafted, the Quebec native played for two seasons with the Victoriaville Tigers of the QMJHL from 1994-96 and began his NHL career in 1997 as a free agent with the New York Rangers. After spending three seasons with the Rangers organization, Stock went on to sign with the Montreal Canadiens prior to the 2000-2001 season and was traded after 20 games to the Philadelphia Flyers. He later played two seasons for the Boston Bruins where he became a standout and fan favourite for his tenacious and gritty style of play.  

After retiring as a player in 2004 he hosted a radio show on Montreal station Team 990 and later became a regular member of the Hockey Night in Canada broadcast team for close to a decade. In 2018, Stock was the ice hockey analyst for CBC/Radio-Canada's coverage of the Winter Olympic Games PyeongChang. He currently appears on RDS.

This season, Stock rejoins his Season 2 partner, Violetta Afanasieva. He is skating for the ALS Society of Quebec — a charity that works to provide support and referrals for people living with ALS and their loved ones, fund research, and raise awareness of the disease.
