Young player mic’d up during intermission at Saskatoon Blades game
The Blades then released a video of Kiefer Girard, 7, and put it on their social media channels.
Being mic’d up, he was nervous before hitting the ice in front of 3,445 fans at SaskTel Centre, but Girard’s mother Trisha reassured him everything would be OK.
During his play, Girard demonstrated a determination to acquire the puck, and even the ability to sing while skating.
It’s the second year in the Timbit Initiation Hockey Program for Girard, who plays with the Martensville Ducks.
Saskatoon blanked the Regina Pats 4-0 in the WHL game last Friday.
