BAD DAY FOR BRADY


Jan. 14, 2020


At 5-foot-8 and 220 pounds, Brady Parsons is shaped like an old-time, stay-at-home defenceman.

He doesn't play like one! He can rack up points!

On Sunday, the 14-year-old Sexsmith native scored twice and added an assist to help the Grande Peace Athletic Club Higson Dental Group Storm to a 4-1 win on the road over the Fort Saskatchewan Rangers.

Thanks in part to Parsons' heroics, the Storm now find themselves in first place in the Black Division of the Edmonton Rural Bantam Hockey League.
