Rafaël’s coaches described him as a warrior. He never quits and is always giving everything on and off the ice, either in practices or games.

“I have a dream, just like many of us, and I work as hard as I can to achieve my dream of becoming an NHL goalie,” he said.

The Montreal Canadiens’ goaltender, Carey Price, is who Rafaël tries to emulate because he is a very technical goalie.

Rafaël is very excited to play and compete with so many great future legends in Toronto.
