When Huck shows up to the rink he's always hyped up and ready for gametime. At just five years old Huckleberry is one of the youngest players in the league. He doesn't let this stop him from being a difference maker on the ice. Huck loves pressuring the puck and setting up in front of the net. After completing his first season of 6u Huckleberry is looking forward to taking his passion into next season. Congratulations! Go Huck!

Addalynn first learned about the Learn to Play Hockey for free program during the pandemic, so she was so excited for the rink to return to regular programs, so she could sign up and start playing hockey.
