Caden is the happiest when he’s on the ice. He loves to play and train. He also enjoys scoring and setting up his teammates to score as well. It feels awesome when you can make it work as a team. However, we’re not sure any feeling tops meeting your hockey idol.

“Patrick Sharp was the first hockey player I looked up to,” Caden said. “He inspired me to play hockey. I was able to tell him this a few months ago [when I met him]. He also noticed I wear number 10 in his honor. It was the best day ever.”

Caden is excited to meet and play with kids from all over, and thinks it will be exciting to play on a team with kids he hasĀ  played against throughout the years.
