It's stories like these that make it all worthwhile!
Here's an email we received from the family of a young Aeros fan!
I want to take the time to properly acknowledge Mr. Brayden Gyurkovits of Valleyview, AB.
When it was mentioned to Brayden by his billet mom that our 4-year-old Grayer would love to meet him he jumped at the opportunity. I was thinking possibly within the month but Brayden went out of his way and made time to meet him within a day!
Grayer is dreaming of being a goalie and has been practising nonstop since he was 2. He was a little shy at their meeting where Brayden chatted with him and signed a game puck he had gotten from the game over the weekend but Grayer hasn’t stopped talking about Brayden since.
The Edson Aeros are truly blessed to have someone with such a big heart, willing to take the time to make a child feel special and with such a great sense of community. I also had the pleasure of meeting Brayden who was kind, engaging and just an all around great guy.
