In his first full season with the Golden Rockets, Braeden Allkins is trying to do everything he can to help the team succeed.

Allkins is excited about the upcoming season and said “It feels good,” to be in the Rockets uniform on a full-time basis.

“Just playing in Junior is great because in Midget things were slower. I am also looking forward to the higher level of hockey,” he said.

One of the things Allkins got to do last season was to go out on the road with the team.

“I like heading out on the road with the team. I had a taste of the KIJHL last year as an affilated player,” he said.

Playing in front of the home-town crowd is also a big thrill for the young players who grew up playing minor hockey in Golden.

“It is nice to be in the community with all of the fans. Most of them know me so there is a lot of support here,” he said.

Allkins grew up watching the Rockets, so having the chance to put the jersey on full time is extra special for him.

“I moved here when I was young and hockey was always a big thing for the area,” he said.

As for a personal goal this season Allkins said with a smile he does hope to beat his teammate and friend Daniel Dahlin in points.
