The Golden Rockets have found a goalie who has helped aid in the confidence of the team after a slow start to the year.  Danny Todosychuk started his season in Vernon where he played last season with the Vipers. After an extra goalie came into the mix the Rockets jumped at the chance to bring the talented 17-year-old to Golden.

Only in town for a few weeks Todosychuk is enjoying both the team and the area.

“I like it a lot here. There are a good group of guys in there and a lot of talent. I am having a lot of fun here so far,” he said.

When Todosychuk arrived the Rockets were on a three game losing streak but any concerns he may have had went away very quickly.

“The guys were saying when I showed up that I shouldn’t let the 0-3 start fool me. It showed in the first game when we squeaked out a win. We have a lot of offence. We have dominated the last four games,” he said.

After four games in the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League Todosychuk has won three games and only lost one in double overtime.

In his second game with the Rockets he earned his first shutout of the year.

“It was good. It was a close game where I didn’t face a lot of shots. They had a few good scoring chances and it always feels good to get a shutout.”

Even though he hopes to make his way back to Jr. A hockey at some point he     said he is happy to be in Golden and trying to help the Rockets

“I want to get as many wins as I can for this team. I want to try and make a jump back up but if that doesn’t happen I am more than happy to go deep in the playoffs with this team. I think we can do it.
