Garrett Hedican #16
Our sophomore defenseman started skating at age 3, & playing hockey at 5. Garrett came from Minnesota where he played for 5 years, then played for the Bloomington youth travel team, until settling on the Sharks this season. He is homeschooled & plays hockey to fulfill his PE credits, and isn’t sure long term what hockey may bring but is interested in possibly coaching. His most memorable hockey moment is from last year. His team beat Decatur in their “Tournament of Friends” as a last minute replacement for another team that dropped out. They beat them twice in their own rink as the away team to win their tournament. He also got to play on Notre Dame’s home rink last year - a very fun experience. Some favorites: Shea Weber, Minnesota Wild & all MN teams. #16 & #61, cheeseburgers & fries, & The Walking Dead. His community volunteering is largely with the Central Illinois Down Syndrome Organization, as his three year old brother has Down syndrome & Garrett supports him as much as possible.
How does it feel to be an MCYHA HARK?
“This is a completely different hockey experience than anywhere else I have ever played. The locker room is so fun to be in and we have a lot more off-ice activities than I have ever had before.”
** Adam Herrling #2 Defensive Black Shark is doing well, but expected to be out until he’s 100% - we hope that is before EOY.
