Last week, we had a quick chat with young Huskies defender Bradley Taylor. We talked about how he got started in the game, his admiration for another #8, golf, his elaborate pre-game rituals and more.

Listen to the interview here:

Bradley is sponsored by Shinny, who are specialists in profiling and sharpening skates. They are based in the London Borough of Havering, Romford RM7.

They told us:

“At Shinny we use ProSharp’s AS 2001 ALLPro-SC machine, ensuring that skates are perfectly profiled and sharpened to your chosen specifications with exact precision every time.

“We stock Bladetech’s Diamond Like Carbon (DLC) blade replacements, and you can also order a custom set just like the ones Bradley Taylor wears for the Huskies. We now have a range of jerseys and are about to expand into pro hockey sticks. We also run our own development session for players wanting to advance in the game.

“We are proud to sponsor Bradley Taylor as he seemed the obvious choice for us. He is an inspirational role model for ice hockey on and off the pad. His dedication to the game throughout the years really stood out for us, and this is what we are all about.

“Bradley continues to develop his game during his time with the Huskies and is a real asset to the team. We have enjoyed following the team this season and seeing them go from strength to strength. Go Huskies!”
