Newcomer Savard finding niche with Hounds - Junior Hockey News

HARTLAND, MI - What's not to like about the Hartland Hounds?


That was the question Brad Savard found he was asking himself when he was looking for a new team to skate for earlier this season.


One of the team's newest forwards, the 18-year-old Milford native is finding his niche with the team and enjoying the ride as the Hounds enter Saturday night's road game against the Michigan Ice Dogs with a perfect 32-0 record.


"I ended up playing for the Hounds because my original team, the Detroit Falcons, was not working out for me and I wanted to be on a team that would benefit me," explained Savard. "I wanted to play for the Hounds because I had heard great things about the coaches, I knew some people on the team and it sounded like the team played a style of hockey I could apply myself to.


"I feel I've adjusted quite well. I love the style of play that this team uses."


Last year, Savard played high school hockey for South Lyon High School and was teammates with current Hartland forward Jared Vincek.


"South Lyon helped prepare me for juniors through the amount of practice and time put into preparing myself physically and mentally," Savard said. "This season is a much higher level than high school. It's faster and more physical of a game."


Savard also has his sights set on his future, including looking at a school the Hounds will play in an exhibition game on Jan. 19.

"My short-term goals in hockey are to try to make it to the USHL or on to a college team, more specifically, Eastern Michigan's college team," said Savard. "The hard work never stops, so we'll see."


And what's not to like about a hard-working player looking to realize his dreams?


Savard and the Hounds travel to the Wayne Community Center Saturday night to play the Michigan Ice Dogs. Game time is set for 8 p.m.
