Minot's Alex Schoenborn Drafted By Sharks

Posted: Updated:

The National Hockey League is always the dream for every kid that's laced up his skates on the pond or the rink. That dream was realized by Minot's Alex Schoenborn this week.

Schoenborn was drafted by the San Jose Sharks in the third round. The 72nd pick played the last two seasons with Portland of the WHL and was a member of the Magi his freshman year. Alex was home when he heard the news surrounded by family. Support like that from those closest around him has propelled him to where he's at now. Jarrod Olson was his youth hockey coach and still works with him, training, coaching, and giving him advice. That advice? It hasn't changed throughout the years.

"It really isn't anything different than what I've told him or nine years. Work hard, make an impression, don't sit back and wait for someone to do it to you. He's been a kid that's done it for himself. He's such a powerful young man on and off the ice. He'll bring that powerful game to his rookie camp here in a week," Olson says.

As Alex gets set to take off for California, he won't forget the lessons Olson taught him.

"He just always taught me to work hard. I played for him in bantams and mites when I was younger. He'd sit me a couple times, actually. He always taught me to work hard and respect people, chase your dreams and that's definitely helped me growing up, for sure," Schoenborn says.

Schoenborn told me he hopes to make the team's AHL affiliate in Worcester this year and play for the Sharks, hopefully in two or three years.
