C: What is your earliest memory of hockey? 

GS: My earliest memory is probably my mom taking me to the rink and I had this little (Tim Hortons) “Timbits” jersey.

C: Who inspired you to want to play hockey at a higher level? 

GS: My coach growing up – I was about 8 or 9, and he was just getting done playing professional hockey. He asked if I wanted to play and take it more seriously, and he showed me the way and how to be a pro. He made me want to get better and go to the next level.

C: What do you like about Wenatchee? 

GS: The fans are great, the coaches are great, my teammates are great and the billets are awesome. All around, it’s a great city and I love it.

C: What are your favorite places to eat in Wenatchee and what do you order? 

GS: Probably Iwa, the sushi place (in downtown Wenatchee) – I get tuna rolls.

C: What is your favorite opposing arena to play at and why? 

GS: I’d say none of them, because I don’t like any of the opposing rinks…probably Penticton.

C: What is something Coach Clarky has taught you since you joined the Wenatchee Wild? 

Garrett Szydlowski: He’s taught me how to be a pro off the ice as well as on the ice. Taking care of the body is probably the biggest thing, and he’s shown us how to do that and always make time for it. That’s shown me that taking care of my body is important.

Connor: Garrett, thanks again for letting the fans get to know you better. We here in Wenatchee appreciate your time here as a Wild player! You can follow #27, Garrett Szydlowski on Instagram: @szydlowski.garrett
