Youth Player of the Month
Congratulations to the Aufeis Youth Player of the Month at The Rinks – Poway ICE, Connor! Connor (#4) is 10 years old and plays defenseman on the Rinks Squirts Black team. He joined the hockey program in July 2017, and is now all about hockey. His favorite team is the Anaheim Ducks and his favorite player is Cam Fowler, who also wears #4. Connor loves to go crazy at the skills and drills practices and is always eager to learn new tricks. On his off time, Connor practices his unicycle skills, rides his dirt bike, and plays with his friends. He is often forced to watch his sister’s figure skating performances and spend time with his family. Connor’s favorite hockey quotes are, “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take,” and, “School is important, but hockey is importanter.” Congratulations, Connor!
