14. Feel free to write anything you want in this section, a note to your parents, current teammates, coaches or anything you would like to say that wasn’t answered in the questions.
Austin: I would like to thank my family, friends, teammates and coaches. I would especially like to thank my first hockey coach Jason Stein. He practically taught me the game of hockey and how to skate. He turned me into the player I am now. He was my biggest cheerleader and taught me that you have to have heart and will to go out and try. I think those are important lessons not only in sports but in life as well. These past 7 years of playing hockey have been some of the best (and sometimes trying) times of my life
