Name: Jesse Drydak  
Current/Last Team Played For: Petrolia Squires 2017-2018 WOAA  
Years Played in Lambton: 2000-2008 (Roughly)
 
1. What was your favorite minor hockey memory? -I remember we were playing in the Ottawa Valley Titans fall tournament and my dad surprised me with tickets to the Ottawa Senators vs. Colorado Avalanche game to see my favorite player Joe Sakic. Doesn’t get much better missing school to play hockey then get to see your favorite player play for the first time.  

1. Greatest accomplishment in Jr. hockey?

-Winning the Weir Cup in 2008 with the Sarnia Legionnaires and having the opportunity to play for the Sutherland cup was undoubtedly the highlight of my junior career. To add to that it was the rebirth season of the Sarnia Legionnaires; we were the first group in many years that had the privilege to wear the Legionnaire jersey, we constantly played in front of large/sold out crowds and we had the full support of the city which made it an experience that I will never forget, an experience I hope future Legionnaires get the opportunity to experience.

 

2. When you played for Lambton who was your favorite sting player?

-Steven Stamkos. He was only one year older than me at the time and he walked into arguably the best major junior league in the world and scored 42 goals as a rookie and we had the opportunity to watch it first-hand. He was a treat to watch and continues to be one of my favorites in the game for not only his play on the ice but how he carries himself off the ice.

 

3. What one thing did you learn in minor hockey that helped you get to the next level?

-You are the only person who can dictate how far you make it, don’t rely on anyone else. If you don’t put in the extra work, don’t expect the extra results.

 

4. What do you see yourself doing in 10 years?

-I still see myself being involved in hockey one way or another, after some time away from the game I am inching closer to the idea of coaching. The idea of being able to try and give back to the game that helped me so much as a person is growing more important now as I get a little older.
