Braeden Bzovey as a rookie went beyond everything we asked of him. He was a forward who transitioned to defense to help his team. He has outstanding skill set and we knew he could make the transition.
Indeed, he ripened into the best defensemen in the entire Elite conference. He won End of the Season League ll Star, Repeatedly selected by the League as Player of The Week and Player of The Month awards. He was selected as Assistant Captain and showed strong leadership skills in chartering his team to a Divisional Title, a Playoff Championship advance to Nationals.
He is a great student of the game. He was the key 5 on 5 and was the catalyst on the power play quarterbacking the play. He scored 13 goals notched 18 assists for 31 points. On the defensive end he was completely a shut down guy. He owned the PK. He helped his team win 23 straight wins. Very impressive.
We are thrilled Braeden will be back in an Eels jersey. This will be another huge year for him. He feels comfortable now having played his first year. This is a young man with incredible passion and dedication. He has completely bought into the Eels system. You can see it in his eyes the unwavering commitment to win. He knows we have some unfinished business left on the table.
