Golden Rockets defenceman and captain Austin Pultz is excited to spend another year in the community.

While some of the Rockets players are here for their first time, Pultz is a returning Rocket, after spending a few years here in the past.

Born in Saskatoon, and raised in Calgary, Pultz has been spending his life on skates since he was two years old. He began playing hockey thanks to his father at the age of three.

Pultz played for the Rockets two years ago, but left to play junior A in Ontario. He came back to Golden to pursue his love of hockey and the outdoors.

“I have an awesome billet,” he said. “She’s part of the reason I came back. I like the community and homey feel.”

When he’s not on the ice, Pultz enjoys hiking, snowmobiling, dirt biking, and camping.

In his next five years, he hopes to attend post-secondary school for business, with a major in marketing or accounting. He’d like to play hockey while he attends school, and afterwards he wants to open a power sports business.

For now, Pultz is going to enjoy every minute in Golden. He loves playing with the team here, and says the team atmosphere is great.

“All the players are great guys,” he said. “You’re just doing what you love with all of your best friends.”
