Gogan, who’s in his first year of video game design and development at Eastern College in Moncton, spent last season playing with the Cumberland-Colchester Colts of the Nova Scotia Junior C Hockey League after three years with the ARHS Vikings.
“It was intense and very fast. They have several players who played in the OHL,” the 19-year-old defenceman said. “They train at a very fast pace and their instincts are just incredible. When they get the puck they know where to put it without thinking.”
He said the pace was a quicker than what he was accustomed to in junior hockey, but the skill level exhibited by the players was incredible.
The team is coached by former NHL player Graeme Townshend and Gogan said he runs intense practices with lots of movement. Considering he hadn’t been on the ice since the Junior C season ended, Gogan said it was a challenging practice.
