Let Me Introduce Myself

Hey guys. My name is Geordie Wudrick, one of the newest member of the V-Reds Men’s Hockey Team. I’ll try to give and inside look on how the team’s doing on a weekly basis on our journey to the 2012 CIS National Championships. I’m going try and give a fun look on how things are going, give some game recaps of the week and try to let people meet some of the players from an inside perspective. I’ll try to keep things fairly loose and might have some common slang and nicknames thrown around, and I wont be scared to toss out some Twitter mentions along the way.

I grew up out west in a bunch of cities around Vancouver, but spent most of my time in a city called Abbotsford, and played most of my minor hockey there growing up. I’m definitely a city boy, growing up in Vancouver and am a big Canucks fan. Definitely a new experience for this guy being this far out east, and so far its been pretty good getting to see a new part of Canada and having a team full of beauties from all over the country.

I just recently joined the team at Christmas time after I left the team I was playing for in Germany, the Rosenheim Starbulls. Just a short three month stint at pro hockey over there before I decided the school route was best for me. I’ll hopefully try and continue playing pro hockey somewhere after I win a few championship rings and get my degree here at UNB. I’m a first year business student and just getting back into the swing of school since graduating four years ago. Before I was playing overseas, I played 5 years in the Western Hockey League. I finished my last two years with Kelowna Rockets after I started off with three years in small town Saskatchewan playing for the Swift Current Broncos, where I played with my buddy Bretton Stamler for part of a season before he came out here.

I’m a big social media guy, so follow me on Twitter @DoubleCornDogs. Would love to hear some feedback about the blog and would love to hear what guys you would like to be profiled each week.

Good luck to all the other teams and athletes who are playing this week!
