Player development a priority for Redhawks
“Hopefully there will be more Arizona boys that don’t have to travel,” said Powell, the Redhawks’ coach. It will be a program dedicated to getting their players to the next level. ”The ideal hockey player for us is the kid that wants to go as far as he can,” said Schursky, the Redhawks’ GM. “If you don’t want to go somewhere after this, you’re not going to have your heart in it. You’re not going to have the determination. You’re not going to have the pride.”
Powell was approached by a group of interested parties who asked him if a second junior team in the state was feasible. ”My first reaction was, ‘Yeah, there’s a whole opportunity that’s available in town for a group of owners and a lot of kids,’” said Powell.
“When you sit down at the end of the day,” Schursky said, “and you’re hearing, ‘Hey, we’ve got this junior team out in Arizona, and … these guys are putting out good players and getting into good schools.’ The kids will be exposed to that, and maybe they’ll consider playing for us.” Player development will be at the forefront for the Redhawks.
“Even though you’re playing at this level, you’re building up, getting better,” Schursky said. “We’re going to get you, if not to college, we’re going to get you to somebody who can look at you some more. ”We have the avenues to move kids into college,” he added. “We have the avenues to move the kids other, higher, junior teams that also have the avenues to get them to D-I.”
