Submitted By rgiles on Monday, November 21, 2016
HH Minor Midget Player Spotlight is Dakota Zarudny #49 who plays forward.

Dakota you have been one of the originals of the team, having been a Hurricane since? 
Minor Atom.
You have been fortunate to have had your Grandma Judy help with getting you to games and practices that your parents could not due to their work schedules or commitments they had with your older brother and sister.

Yes, my Grandma Judy is great.  I always have a good time with her.  When we travel to games sometimes we have to listen to Elvis or country.  She always has an after game or practice snack with chocolate milk. Grandma Judy rocks!

Tell us 5 things we do not know about Dakota.

1.  I wanted to play lacrosse my whole life but my Mom would not let me.  She was always afraid I would get hurt.
2.  My novice year in hockey I got 80 goals in the season.
3.  When I was younger I secretly wanted braces even though I didn’t need them.
4.  My favourite donut at Timmies is a sour cream glazed.
5.  My favourite hockey company is Easton.

You have been sent to a barren patch of land in Nunavut by the Coach as punishment.  You can bring 3 things beyond the basic necessities, what would you bring?
1.  Hockey equipment to practice my shooting.
2.  Grandma Judy because it will always be a good time.
3.  Bench press with weights to keep up my physique.
What is your biggest hockey pet peeve?
When people set you offside on purpose.

Finish the following sentences:

NASA launched a new rocket, at take off a scientist was overheard saying, “The launch of that rocket reminded me of Dakota Zarudny’s shot because…. It released really quick and was awesome!

Battle of the Blades is having another season.  The host was overheard saying, I like Dakota Zarudny’s skating style……because he is quick and skates very smooth.
Liam wanted me to ask you who your favourite center on the team was and why?
I like them all as they each have different qualities but at the moment it is Liam as he is on my line.

Who should I spotlight next?  Brendan Kennedy
Read Brendan's profile to see the question Dakota wants Brendan to answer.
The picture Dakota submitted is from 2009 when his team, the Orangeville Flyers won the OMHA's.
