Interview with top scorer of Eagles division.

Kacper ZIARKOWSKI, team Poland Select U15, is actual leader of the Carpathian Junior Hockey League U15 players statistics. He answered our questions after second round...

Tell us something about your hockey beginnings. How did you get into hockey and where did you take your first hockey steps?

I do not remember exactly how my adventure with hockey began, because I was too small then, but I learned from my parents that when I was 4 my grandfather bought me a helmet, and half a year later my dad took me to the first training.

Do you still remember your first coaches? Can you highlight some of the trainers who have had a major impact on your hockey growth?

My first trainer was Adam Kiedewicz, who helped me to take my first steps, coach, who also helped me a lot. Andrzej Podlas, who trains me up to now, I would like to mention trainers such as Steave Baek, Sławomir Szachniewicz, Łukasz Kiedewicz and trainers from the hockey school of Marian Gaborik.

Do you have a hockey role model or a favourite hockey team?

I do not have any favorite team, but my idol is Connor McDavid. I love his speed and stick technique.

What would you like to achieve in hockey? Do you have a hockey dream?

My biggest dream is to play in NHL, because it is the best hockey league in the world.

If you didn't played hockey, is there another sport you would have devoted yourself to?

There is no such discipline. I am worried of my life without ice hockey.

The U15 Carpathian Junior Hockey League has two round behind it. What are your impressions from this competition?

The league is a very nice adventure and the most important thing is that my team is at the top of the ranking.

After the second round you are the top goal-scorer and the most productive player in the U15 category; what is the secret of your success?

I do not have any secret by my own. I just train hard and strive to be better.

Like you, your team has also done well. Poland Select U15 is in first place of Blue group. Do you think you can keep this position till the end of the season?

I think that if we train hard and in every match we will leave all our heart on the ice, we will stay in the first place.

The next round of the CJHL is on the programme in February, in Debrecen. What are your goals when travelling to Hungary?

My biggest goal in Debrecen will be that my team will not lose any match and stay in the first place.

In conclusion, what would you wish to  our teammates but also to your competitors in year 2019?

In 2019, I wish all competitors a season without injury. I wish them the greatest successes in hockey. Thank you and best regards to all my family and my club, MKS Sokoły Toruń.
