You, who wakes up with your favourite hockey stick beside your bed. You, who in street hockey takes your turn in net in the dead of winter. You, who rushes home from school to make practice. You, who dreams of jersey’s with a Canada on the front. You who beats your parents to the door for those 5am games.
You who works hard — does the drills, passes the puck, keeps your head up and realizes that the road to the NHL is a long one but that those that have done it before you have left tracks for you. It’s hard work. It’s tiring. It seams impossible. But it isn’t. Because anything is possible if you want it.
So you can do it. You can work hard. You can be tenacious. You can be dedicated. You can balance school and hockey. You, can be Ekblad. You are Ekblad and you are up next.
