O’FALLON – O’Fallon’s Grant Miner will soon be heading to Florida to play for the USPHL Florida Eels during their 2019-20 season.
Miner has been playing hockey for the past nine years and has been a part of O’Fallon Panther Hockey since he was an eighth grader.
Wearing number 48, Miner is a junior forward. From watching hockey on side lines at a Junior’s game when he was six, to getting on the ice and actually playing the sport, Miner is now living out his life long dream of pursuing hockey at a new level.
“From watching the sport as a child and wanting to play it, to actually getting to play it, hockey has been a long dream of mine. The decision to play for the Florida Eels wasn’t too hard to make, since hockey has been my dream, since I was six. I am looking forward to meeting new people and having a different hockey experience, than playing at a high school level,” Miner said.
All his team members and coaches will miss him, but wish him luck during the next hockey season.
