Player Spotlight: Brendan Kennedy # 16
Submitted By rgiles on Tuesday, November 29, 2016
HH Minor Midget Player Spotlight is Brendan Kennedy # 16 who plays forward.

Brendan you have been a Hurricane since?  Minor Atom.
I am going to fan girl you for a moment and voice what most parents say about you.  You are not a big guy but it doesn’t stop you from digging deep and grinding it out.  

Everyone is always impressed that you don’t play it safe and actually take on the players that must seem like line backers rather than hockey players.  Where does that drive and courage come from?
Knowing I have the ability and skill to make things happen no matter what size.

Tell us 5 things about Brendan we don’t know

1.  I play tennis.
2.  I play roller hockey and my team has won 3 championships.
3.  I have 4 pet fish.
4.  My favourite food is steak.
5.  Every shift I try to do 1 good thing.

If I were asked to describe how Brendan Kennedy’s hockey style is, I would say, “shades of brilliance”.  If asked the same question…

Your Mom and Dad would say I am a forechecker and a grinder in the corners and always skate to the puck.
Your teammates would say I like to skate and stick handle.  I work the corners.
Your coach would say likes to control the puck and create opportunities.  I am patient with the puck.

Dakota wanted me to ask you, who your favourite male actor was and why?
