Today’s Junior Jacks spotlight is on Ayden Hartzell. Ayden plays for the Squirt B - Brooks team.
|Team||Squirt (10U) - Brooks|
|Hometown||Twin Lake, MI|
|School District||Reeths Puffer|
Ayden started skating when he was four years old and started playing goalie at age five. He continued his position as goalie through his second year as a Mite. At age nine, he skated out as a forward and worked hard to better his skills on the ice - some weeks playing/practicing six days a week.
Ayden has had a fantastic '17-'18 season!! Most recently, Ayden and his team won the 10U Championship in Cadillac, MI. Junior Jack's Brooks was the only team to go 5-0 for the weekend! Ayden has picked up goal scoring moves by watching others play and studying the game. His passion for hockey has helped him become a top-scorer on his team. While he loves the thrill of a goal, he remains humble about his success.
When he's not playing on the ice, Ayden enjoys camping, Nerf gun wars, riding his dirt bike, hanging out with friends and, of course, playing mini-sticks. Over the years, Ayden has developed many friendships that hopefully last a lifetime!!
Stay true to you #35!!
