Adult Player of the Month
This month’s Anaheim Player of the Month is Ken Roach! He is the both a skater and a net minder and often pulls double-duty with multiple games the same day. He is always itching to be on the ice and has become one of our go-to goalie subs! Sometimes even agreeing to play hours before the game. Ken started skating out at age 12 and learned how to play goalie at age 16. His love of hockey is evident when after serving in Iraq, he had to switch from a left-handed goalie to right due to injury. We appreciate the great attitude he always brings to the rink.
