Aidan Brook is back in the Parkland and he’s ready to do anything it takes to help the Dauphin Kings win. The Roblin native has joined the team after starting his season in the Western Hockey League.
Brook opened the season by playing seven games with the Medicine Hat Tigers and he most recently played 11 games with the Prince George Cougars. Brook was set to make his season debut with Dauphin this weekend during a home-and-home with the Winnipeg Freeze; however, that won’t happen as both games have been postponed.
So Brook’s season debut with the team will have to wait a few more days as the team’s next game is Wednesday in Swan River against the Stampeders.
“Really happy to be back home,” said Brook. “I can’t wait to play with this team and chase a title. I can already tell we have an amazing group and I’m thrilled to be a part of it.”
Brook says he wasn’t having much fun this year playing with Medicine Hat and Prince George and he wasn’t thrilled with how he was playing. Now, he’s ready to re-focus and get down to business with his home region junior club. Aidan strengthens an already strong back-end.
“It’s a great honour for me to get the chance to play with this great organization,” said Brook. “I’m proud to put the jersey on.”

Brook played six games for the team in Red Deer, scoring once and adding one assist. Although the team’s result wasn’t what they would have hoped for, Brook says the experience was one that he will never forget.
“I had the chance to play with and against the best players in my age group, that was great,” said Brook. “The atmosphere was amazing and just everything about it.”
Any pre-game rituals? I like to play sewer ball before games but that’s about it
Aidan will make his home season debut with the team next Saturday when the Virden Oil Capitals pay a visit to Credit Union Place.
