Huskies Player of the Week: Aiden Craig-Steele

first_imgWhat is your style of play, how would you describe it?Aiden: “I’m a playmaker. Sometimes I get in trouble for passing a little bit too much. I’m a pass and playmaker I’d say. One of my best aspects I’d say is probably my vision. So yeah, passing is what I like to do.”What is your favourite moment with Huskies?Aiden: “One game last year I got called up with them, and I scored a big goal. But just this last weekend I scored with about 40 seconds left to win the game, so that was pretty cool.”How do you feel about the goal you made with 56 seconds left in the game at the NWJHL Showcase?Aiden: “I don’t know, I had done it for a long time. I’ve always scored big scores like that since I’ve been playing minor hockey. I don’t know what it is, I’ve never been the best player on the team but I usually come in the clutch, and it feels good to be clutched sometimes. It was good; it felt awesome.”What is your favourite NHL team?Aiden: “My favourite team is the Detroit Redwings. I’ve liked them forever; they’re not doing so well this year, but they used to be really good when I was younger, so I jumped on their wagon”.Advertisement What is your favourite NHL player?Aiden: “Pavel Datsyuk. He retired, but he’s my favourite player. If I had to pick one from the NHL, probably go with Nicklas Backstrom.” FORT ST.
