From playing mini sticks in the hallway with his dad playing goalie, to shooting in the garage, it all led to his love for hockey. Once he got out on the ice for the first time and started playing real hockey, he knew the sport was made for him.
Kaden McNeil was born in the small town of Renous, New Brunswick watching his dad play the game he loved at the local rink. Seeing his father's love for the game helped him decide that he was going to be a hockey player.
McNeil knew that, eventually, if he wanted to develop his abilities and move his career forward, he would have to leave home and play hockey in a larger city.
“It was a little sad, leaving my family and friends behind in my little hometown, where it all started but my passion and drive and love for hockey will always matter for me the most and if it meant I had to go away for hockey I was willing to do that.”
He moved to Saint John where he attended Rothesay Netherwood School (RNS), took class and played for the school's hockey team. He was able to put up 32 points in 92 games.
