Center Ice Spotlight: Ayodele Adeniye | Columbus Ohio

My name is Ayodele Adeniye, I am from Columbus Ohio, I play for the University Alabama Huntsvilles D1 hockey program. My hockey story is a fun story of adversity, i’ve played travel hockey in seven different cities in six different states in two different countries. It’s been a fun but stressful journey to chase my first game of playing NCAA Division I hockey, but that’s not where I want my story to end I have aspirations of playing in the NHL.

I would love to be in HPOC ambassador because my overall goal in life is to grow the game of hockey to give kids the opportunity that I was given to travel the world play a game they love and go to school for free. I am looking forward to having a platform to speak out about injustice and hockey and spread the game of hockey to POC‘s and minorities not only in the country but worldwide.

I’m a pretty open book and am not too unique other than I have had 7 eye surgeries but will not let that stop me from chasing my dreams
