Aeros fans....we have another signing to announce...
Please help us welcome....YIAnni Tsatzalis to the Aeros club!
Now, Yianni might not be a household name ....... yet!! But you are going to love this player!!
Coach Bricknell had this to say about Yianna;
"Yainni started hockey at the age of 9. At the age of 11 he made a AA team that Jim Patton coached (Esa’s Dad) .
Jim tells me that no body will ever out work him. He is a type of player that is a sponge and absorbs everything and eats, Sleeps, Breaths hockey. The reason why he stay at AA is because that’s where the best coach was in his area.
Yianni is 6’3” and 187 lbs. he has put on 7 lbs in 6 weeks. The kid is very, very strong! This is a player we will have in our program for 4 years. He will be a star. His work ethic is unmatched! I’ve spoken to a few other coaches and they all said he is a monster and a work horse. Other coaches who have watched him work said he'll be a star!"
Yianni and his older sister are moving to Cold Lake. His sister is studying school through an online university. Good thing we have Portage College attached to the Cold Lake Energy Centre.
A diamond in the rough! Welcome to the Aeros, Yianni!!
