"In my Bantam AAA year, we played the Monarchs in AAA Provincials, which helped me because I got the chance to play against some of the best city kids," said Mozdzen. "Then I made Midget AAA my first year trying out which was great, and in my second and third year I scored over 40 points which gave me the confidence to know I can play at an elite level and produce."
In 10 games with the Blizzard this year, the Alonsa product has 5 points with three of them being goals.
"I'm loving it up here," said Mozdzen. "I don't play every game, but I'm just trying to make the most of it every day."
Being a rather small guy, Mozdzen notes there have been some challenges in the transition from Midget to Junior hockey.
"It's a big difference for sure," said Mozdzen. "I'm one of the smaller guys, but at the same time, I like to think I'm one of the biggest guys. I'm 18 playing against 20-year-olds, so it's definitely been a huge difference from Midget to Junior."
The Blizzard are having a great season so far, as they sit in a tie for first place in the MJHL with a 10-3-2 record, and one of the wins was a big comeback yesterday against the Virden Oil Capitals.
"After we pulled that win out yesterday, the guys were pumped," said Mozdzen. "We were trailing 3-0 after 40, but the guys really bought in, and came all the way back for a big two points."
Mozdzen and the rest of the Blizzard will face a tough test this weekend as they head to Portage to take on the Terriers on Saturday and Sunday.
