Ian Desrosier is enjoying his first full season playing for the Golden Rockets, who he watched growing up as a minor hockey player in Golden.

“It has been going pretty good and I have been playing quite a bit lately. It has been working out well,” he said. “I think more defensively, because that is where my focus should be on the ice.”

As for why he feels the team has shown improvement this year, Desrosier feels it is all about communication.

“The team has been playing well. I think we are playing as a team and less as individuals. There has been more communication on the ice as well, which is always good.”

Desrosier added, being at home is inspirational for him.

“I have lived in Golden all of my life. I was always watching the Rockets when I was growing up and wanted to play here when I got older.”

Going into the playoffs Desrosier has high hopes for what the team can achieve.

“I hope we go far. I hope I can contribute throughout the playoffs and keep playing my game. I am going to work hard not to be a hazard on the ice,” he said laughing.
