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.”
