Adult Player of the Month
Congratulations to the Aufeis Adult Player of the Month at The Rinks – Anaheim ICE, Nick Pappas! Nick started playing hockey 3 and a half years ago after not having touched a hockey stick in more than 25 years. He started with the Anaheim Ducks Adult Learn to Play program at Lakewood ICE and then played his first season of Adult Rookie League at Anaheim ICE. He fell in love with hockey all over again after that first season in Rookie league and has been playing in leagues ever since. “I'm still not as good as I'd like to be and I'm constantly learning, but I can't imagine my life without hockey in it and I cherish all the people I've met and the lifelong friends that I've made. Shout out to all the people that have helped along the way, including my current group of misfits...go Deez Pucks!” Congratulations, Nick!
