Brett Ponich

Hockey

                      

   

What has been your career highlight so far?

The highlights of my career so far are definitely getting drafted to the blues and signing a NHL contract with them.  I’ve also been the captain of my junior team The Portland Winterhawks for two years now.  Another highlight would be just having trained and participated in exhibition games with current Blues players.

 

Who were your heroes growing up?

My biggest heroes growing up would have to be my parents. They sacrificed a lot of time and energy in helping me pursue my career and grow as a person. I also looked up to a lot of NHL players such as Paul Kariya, Joe Sakic, Steve Yzerman, and Chris Pronger.

 

Which current NHL player do you play the most like?

I would say that my play is similar to Chris Pronger and also a player like Hal Gill. They are both a couple of bigger guys that move the puck and know how to play well defensively.

 

When did you first know that you had the talent to be a pro?

It’s always been a dream of mine to play hockey professionally. I guess when I got drafted it started to become much more real to me that I had a chance to make it. 

 

What was your favorite subject in school and why?

My favorite subject in school was physics.  I always seemed to enjoy it and it just seemed to make sense to me.  Also, I had a teacher that really knew what he was teaching.

 

What is on your ipod?

On my ipod you would find a little bit of everything. The majority of it would be country but I enjoy a wide range of different types of music. 

 

What do you like to do in your free time?

In my free time I like to relax and be with friends, I like to listen to music and read.
