My name is Michael Carden and I am from Colorado Springs, Colorado. Living in Colorado has presented many opportunities to stay active and do things I love, hockey being one of them. I spend a lot of time at the rink, but whenever I get the chance I love to hang out with team mates or participate in other sports, such as rock climbing and mountain biking. A long time dream of mine has been to play in the NHL, but to play college and have an education first. I love the sport, participating in the 14u NTDP Western Regional Camp this year. I will be playing 14u AAA for the rampage and I am always ready to work for the next top spot. I am ready for my dream to be my reality, even if it means focussing on my sport over anything else.
