Nikita has grown up before our eyes at Townshend Hockey. He came to us as a young skater and has been with us ever since. We are thrilled to have him as an instructor now sharing the skills and foundations that he has learned with us with other students. Nikita is currently playing for Bryn Athyn College in the ACHA D3. His path to college included junior hockey with the Atlanta Jr. Knights, and prior to that with the New Jersey Titans. One of Nikita’s most exciting hockey accomplishments was being invited to try out for the Latvian U18 National Team.
What he enjoys most about working with young hockey players is seeing their drive to improve, and all of the hard work they are willing to put into each drill in order to get better.
