Mykyta Bondariev

Mykyta is a talented hockey player who has achieved remarkable success in his journey. Originally from Ukraine, he prepared for two months to play hockey in America and was subsequently selected to play AAA 16U hockey. Mykyta is grateful for the unwavering support of his teammates, which helped him reach the State championship where they defeated the Colorado Thunderbirds. The 16U team would advance onto the Rocky Mountain District Championships, but unfortunately lost in the finals to the Arizona Jr Coyotes.  

Mykyta's progression of development throughout the season got noticed by his home country of Ukraine as he was selected to participate in the World Junior Championship in France, where his team placed 5th. 

Despite the challenges he faced throughout the year, Mykyta managed to finish with passing grades thanks to his strict routine. In addition to his impressive athletic achievements, Mykyta is fluent in four languages and is currently learning his fifth. His dedication to learning is a testament to his work ethic and commitment to self-improvement. Mykyta's role model is Moritz Seider, a German professional ice hockey defenseman for the Detroit Red Wings, and his favorite NHL team is the Las Vegas Golden Knights. 

Throughout his time playing hockey in America, Mykyta enjoyed the strong team culture and the friendships he made. He is grateful for the support he received from his teammates and coaches, and he looks forward to continuing his hockey journey with the Rocky Mountain RoughRiders. Mykyta is an inspiration to those around him, and his dedication to his craft is a testament to his hard work and perseverance.
