Newbridge Academy is very happy to announce that Brandon Huskilson will return for the 2017-2018 season. Brandon, a grade 11 student, will play for the Varsity Prep team this year.
Brandon hails from Barrington, NS, and started skating almost as soon as he could walk. He enjoyed many successful season throughout minor hockey, where he was aleader amongst his peers, and an offensive leader. In Bantam, Brandon suited up for the Western Hurricanes, before making the jump to the Newbridge Academy U16 team last season.
When asked about his decision to return to Newbridge, Brandon noted: “I love hockey and want to return to Newbridge to further my hockey development, improve my academic achievement, and for exposure to the NCAA. I enjoy a lot that Newbridge has to offer, like the the small class sizes, ice time, being active each day, trainers, coaches, teachers, and traveling to tournaments in the US and Canada. I have been training hard all summer and I am looking forward to getting back to Newbridge and another successful hockey season.”
Head Coach, Matt Anthony, is pleased that Huskilson is returning: “One thing about Brandon, that sticks out over everything else, is his ability to put a smile on everyone’s face around him. On the hockey side, he is a kid who has a great skill set. He can see the ice, he’s got good hands in tight, and he’s an A+ teammate. The big challenge for him this summer was to get bigger and stronger, and from all accounts, he has been working hard to do that. I look forward to having him in the lineup this season!”
Welcome back, Brandon!
