05 Sep Malachi Budd signs with OHA UK for the 2020/2021 season
OHA UK is delighted to announce our newest recruit, Malachi Budd from the Falkland Islands.
Last season our team welcomed Malachi for a month where he was able to experience and trial the program, we are delighted that the experience was valuable to him and he will be returning as a key member of the 2020/2021 roster where he can develop his game even further. Malachi will gain a full-time education at our partnered college whilst training 4+ times a week on the ice and will follow a structured off ice program. He will also join the other student-athletes at OHA UK academy on the 2 trips to Canada.
On Malachi Budd joining OHA UK, his father said:
“Malachi has chosen his shirt number to be #82 that celebrates the liberation day, 14th June 1982 and as a mark of respect for those British forces and the fallen that played a major role that helped and had liberated the Falkland Islands.”
Head Coach Ryan Aldridge added:
“I’m very excited to have Malachi join our group, he came for a month’s trial last season and fitted in well both on and off the ice. I know the boys are excited for him to land in the UK and get involved quickly. I’m looking forward to working with and seeing Malachi reach his true potential, utilising the resources which we offer here at Okanagan UK.”
