Change of Pace

First from our Finnish Bureau:

The title-linked video (just to forewarn, the video plays automatically and the first half or so is in Finnish) features two Wildcat Alumni now playing for Sport Vaasan, Justin Aikins and new arrival Josh Prudden.

This clip provides some insight into what these players experience as they traverse the ranks of professional hockey.

Good luck out there Josh! And continued success to Justin!

Sean Collins was with this team earlier in the season but it did not work out - I'm unsure of what he is up to these days.

Back on this side of the pond:

As for fellow Alum, Kevin Truelson, the story I'm hearing is that he has settled down in the Bakersfield, California area and moved on from professional hockey where he played multiple, extremely successful seasons with the Bakersfield Condors. He married this summer and then signed for the season this fall but reconsidered, eventually deciding to move on to a career in hotel management. But wait. There is a rumor that Kevin may have changed his mind as a spot has opened up on the Condor's blueline with the team really hurting in the absence of one of their star blueliners this season.

We certainly hope to see you out there having fun Kevin, but wish you all the best in whatever choices you make!

That's it for now...

Go 'Cats!
