I recently just talked to the lad about the WJC, and what he has been doing to prepare for it and this is how he replied:
"i have been doing alot of runnin and some lifting. its been goin really good here at the camp and i have been playing well. i hope its all good haha"
This kid is the complete package, I feel really great that he is going to be our future goalie. Humble and works his @ss off. Also, he let me in on a little secret (I think), he said he chose the route of the CHL is because not a single college offered him a scholarship.
That's actually kind of unfortunate that no colleges would offer him scholarships. I guess it's understandable though.
Ah well... the CHL will be a good experience for him. Whether he's playing college hockey, or playing in the minor leagues, he'll get some much-needed training and conditioning. I hope to see him playing soon, he sounds like a real personality for our team, as well as a gifted goaltender. Screw scholastics, let's play some hockey!
