Meet Your Freshmen 2008: Bryce Reddick

Next on the hot seat, freshman Bryce Reddick, son of this guy. Bryce has some hockey blood in him for sure. This year, he's hoping to keep it in him and do some good for Michigan Tech.

Coach Russell only had a couple of things to say on Bryce: "A true freshman. Not allowed to wear white skates here..." What the hell does that mean?! Must be a total inside thing. I'll get the THB Investigation Crew on the case. Hopefully they'll have a report for you later on that. (F2B&G: That's you.)

So without any further delay, I present to you... Bryce Reddick!


Position: Wing
Last Team: Cowichan Valley (BCHL)
Hometown: Las Vegas, NV
Birthday: 8/5/89
Height: 5'10"
Weight: 180 lbs

Tech Hockey Blog (THB): So you were born in Manitoba, but then moved to Nevada? How old were you when you moved?
Bryce Reddick (BR [not to be confused with Bennett Royer]): I actually lived in many different places because my dad played in the NHL. Las Vegas used to be just our summer home so I can’t remember how old I was when we moved there full time. [I should probably do more thinking/research before I ask questions. Oh well. Made you talk lots! Ha! It was all a part of my plan.]

THB: Who inspired you to play hockey?
BR: My dad. [Somehow, this makes complete sense.]

THB: What made you want to come to Michigan Tech to spend your college hockey career?
BR: Well I lived in Michigan when I was younger and I wanted to come to a smaller school and I wanted to play for a school in the WCHA. [In Michigan, smaller school AND the in the WCHA? There can only be one! Thank god we're in the WCHA... That's our recruiting gold.]

THB: Were there any other places that you were looking at?
BR: Alaska-Anchorage and Duluth. [We're glad you chose Tech!]

THB: Are you proficient in the area of rubbing your tummy and patting your head at the same time?
BR: Haha, I have no idea. [Translation: he's terrible at it but doesn't want to admit it!]

THB: What is your favorite form of precipitation?
BR: I prefer just the sun. [You're going to be hating life here really soon. I hope you like the color gray...]

THB: What do you want to accomplish on the ice this season?
BR: To be in the lineup every game and help the team win anyway I can. [I approve!]

THB: How do you like the new seats in the MacInnes?
BR: I think they look really sharp.

THB: Which one of the veteran guys on the team will be your main mentor?
BR: Either Bennett Royer, Justin St. Louis, Geoff Kinrade or Jordan Baker. [All great role models!]

THB: Who is your favorite comedian?
BR: Will Ferrell.

THB: After being asked question number 5, did you try rubbing your tummy at patting your head at the same time? If not, did you think about doing it?
BR: Haha, no. [I still think you're avoiding it because you know you're bad at it.]

THB: If given the chance to skydive, would you do it?
BR: Nope. [Good. You're fairly sane.]

THB: What is your favorite part of Houghton/Michigan Tech?
BR: The small town.

THB: What do you think about the behind-the-scenes facilities at Michigan Tech, such as the locker room, skating treadmill, etc.?
BR: I think it’s unreal. [Oh, it's real, Bryce. You better believe it!]

THB: Besides answering my questions, what is something that really annoys you?
BR: People telling me I did something when I didn’t. [Or saying that you suck at patting your head and rubbing your tummy at the same time when you don't? Point taken. I'll be nice now.]

THB: Can you tell me anything about “Mitch’s Misfits?”
BR: Can’t say I can. [Oh man... What am I going to do with you, Bryce? You better be just being lazy... There is NO WAY you can't tell me SOMETHING, ANYTHING about Mitch's Misfits!]

THB: Where is your favorite place to be?
BR: Las Vegas because of the weather.

THB: If you were a hot dog, would you eat yourself?
BR: Nope.

THB: How much does the noise and energy level of a crowd impact your game play?
BR: I love it. The louder it gets the harder I want to go.

THB: Describe at least one experience that you’ve at so far at Michigan Tech that is unlike anything else in your life.
BR: Living in the dorms, haha.

THB: What would you like to tell all the Michigan Tech fans out there?
BR: It’s gonna be a great season, so come to as many games as possible!

Thanks for taking your time to answer my questions, Bryce! And do your research on Mitch's Misfits! Here's a link to help get you started: :)

And for tomorrow's Meet Your Freshmen 2008... I don't know yet who I'm going to pick. I'll probably take a day off.

Okay, I read the article. Nicely done. Now do your part and grow! ;)

Maybe in the future, you can get them to answer more than three words per question? This doesn't read so much like an interview as an interrogation.

They're hockey players, hockey players don't give world-changing speeches when asked questions
