Golden Rockets forward Daniel Dahlin is very excited that the start of the new season is just a few days away.

The second-year player has been working at McDonald’s in Golden over the summer and working out for what he sees as being a great year upcoming for the team.

“I can’t wait for it right now. I am getting more excited as it gets closer,” he said.

Dahlin has talked to a few of the guys on the team and thinks experience will help the Rockets excel this year.

“We are going to have a really good team this year with high expectations,” he said.

Chatting with the coaching staff, and hearing about what is expected of the team, Dahlin explained this has added fuel to the fire.

“We have a lot of guys who have been here for a while. They know what it takes. We can help the younger players. We need to get ready and be prepared for the season,” he said.

He also hopes to see many fans in the stands again this year. “The fans make the game better. The more fans who make the game rowdier the better. The more we get pumped up.”

As for his personal goals, Dahlin said, “I want to improve continuously over the season. I want to hit at least 40 points this year and we are going to make it past the first round. There will be no early exit.”

He added, “We need to intimidate and help get our goal scorers open to score. We are going to have a good team. More wins and hopefully more fans. We have to prove to everyone in the league this year that we are better than them.”
