Center Ice Spotlight: Desmond Garret | Indianapolis
My name is Desmond and I'm from Indianapolis. I went to an Indy Fuel (ECHL) game before I turned two - they had a post-game skate with the players and I wanted to try skating. My parents bought me skates and took me to a public skate. After about 5 minutes, I stopped pushing the bucket and started skating on own. And, after two hours, I was crying because it was over and I didn't want to leave. Since that day, I try and skate (ice or inline) as often as I can. I've had the opportunity to train with Pavel Barber, be in a video with BHL star Kane Van Gate (with more than one million views) and play in 6U and 8U leagues. I even played in State Wars, the largest inline hockey tournament in the world, this summer.
