The foundation for a strong 2020 Draft has been set for the Wolverines. On Monday, the Organization was excited to announce they had Auto-Protected local Defenseman Aiden Ziprick. Ziprick, who grew up 15 minutes down the road, in Russell was equally excited. “It’s an amazing feeling. I live fifteen minutes away from the rink, and I have watched a lot of games growing up. I’m just glad I got auto protected,” Said Ziprick when asked about his initial feeling of being protected by the Wolverines.
Ziprick, who has spent the last two seasons playing for the Parkland Jr Rangers, credited Russell Minor Hockey as a great stepping stone for what he has accomplished thus far. “It was great. We always had a pretty good team. It really got me going to play for the AAA Bantam Rangers.” When asked about his biggest hockey influence, Ziprick was quick to credit his dad, Cam. “Growing up with him, he taught me a lot of things. When I was little, I would go out and shoot pucks with him. He takes me to pretty much every game.”
Ziprick, who likes to model his game after Boston Bruins Defenseman, Charlie McAvoy, said Wolverine fans can expect “A two-way defenseman, with emphasis on his own end first.”
The Wolverines will now shift focus to Sundays draft, which starts at 9 AM. Follow along on all of our Social Media Platforms for updates.
