30 May Top German prospect joins Academy
The Okanagan Hockey UK Academy are pleased to announce their first new recruit for the 2018/19 season. Highly talented German Goaltender Max Licht will arrive in September to continue his hockey development, having been with top German club Krefeld for the early stages of his hockey career.
Following his recent visit to the UK, Max had this to say about joining the Okanagan Hockey UK Academy “I am excited to be joining OHA and I look forward to getting started in September. The attraction is working with the coaches on a daily basis to improve my game.”
Licht is no stranger to the staff of OHA UK. Max has been on the Academy’s radar for the last 12 months and they have tracked his progress carefully. Paul Kelsall added “We have been talking to Max and his father for the past year. We first saw Max 12 months ago and was extremely impressed. We have been in discussions with him and his father since then. It was great to see him in action recently and we were keen to get this talented goalie on board. We are heading into an exciting time for the Academy. We have a number of new recruits and with our planned trip to Canada in October, everything is shaping up well.”
Okanagan Hockey UK Academy Head Coach Ryan Aldridge commented “It is vital for every team to have solid goaltending and Max will certainly give us that. He is a top prospect and one we identified we wanted to work with. We had the opportunity to see him in action recently and we were keen to get Max here with us as early as possible. Max has a great attitude, wants to learn and I’m sure he will go from strength to strength under the guidance of our coaches.”
Everyone at the Okanagan Hockey UK Academy would like to welcome Max to Swindon and we look forward to seeing him in September.
