I started playing hockey when I was 3. In my Mite and Tyke years, playing goalie was my favourite thing to do. When I was 7, I decided to tryout for the Novice Rep team as a goalie and made the team. I played 9 seasons with the East Lambton Eagles while making the rep team every year. This past season I decided to push myself a little harder and played AAA for the Lambton Jr. Sting Major PeeWee team. Although this year we struggled, I’ve learned a lot and continued to improve and push myself.
This April I have been given the opportunity represent North America on an international stage. I will be traveling to Sweden to practice with my team before heading to Belarus for the World Selects Invitational AAA hockey tournament. The tournament runs from April 24th to the 27th where we will be competing against teams such as Sweden, Finland, Russia, and Belarus. While in Sweden and Belarus, I will be attending a few tours of both cities and have the chance to experience the culture.
Representing my country while playing the sport I love has always been a dream of mine. This will be an experience I will never forget and I hope to represent Team Draftday North America well. I thank each and everyone of you for helping to make my dream come true.
