Senior Chandler Edgecomb Becomes Hockey Goalie His First Year On the Team


By Sydney Wise, North Star Staffer

As the hockey season becomes more intense, senior Chandler Edgecomb begins to feel the pressure that comes with being a new goalie on the team. Not only is this his first year on the varsity team, but it’s also his first year playing hockey since he was around 9 or 10.

“It’s pretty nerve-wracking,” Edgecomb said. “It’s really a lot to take in.”

After eight years of not playing, getting back into it was not easy for Edgecomb. It’s not everyday that a player is goalie his first year on the team. Although he’s had a few rough games, Edgecomb has still shown much improvement since the beginning of the season in October.

“He’s a bit of a character,” Coach Paul Bruemmer said. “It would be a little less fun if Chandler wasn’t there.”
