Dells Ducks Zander Zafiro Commits to Trine University

By Dells Ducks Staff, 04/24/18, 4:00PM EDT


Zander Zafiro commits to Trine University. In his second year of junior hockey with the Dells Ducks, Zafiro posted up very solid numbers. Being part of a very young Ducks team he brought an older more experienced leadership role to the table. Zander will grow to be an impact player at the next level with his potential and focus. Jeff Worlton, Head Coach of the Dells Ducks says, “Zander was the only returner the Dells Ducks had this year.  Zander did a great job being a leader on and off the ice.  He came to the rink every day with a smile on his face and a can-do attitude.  Trine is getting a great person!  The Ducks wish Zander the best of luck.”

    Talking to Zander the other day he was more than appreciated of being able to go play college hockey. Zafiro went on to say:

“Dells Ducks hockey is more then just a junior hockey team. It’s a culture and a family that I grew with over the last two seasons. I want to thank Coach Jeff Worlton and Coach Jack Winger for pushing me this season and always giving me their best on and off the ice. I want to thank our team owner, John Schwarz, for always being approachable and helping me through my last two years of junior hockey. Also my billet family, the Morris’s, who have hosted me the last two amazing seasons, get well soon Kelly! I also want to thank my former Ducks coach, Bill Zaniboni, for signing me then resigning me after my injury my first year. The Dells Ducks staff are unparalleled throughout junior hockey. Without them I wouldn’t be moving on to the next step of my hockey career, Trine University.”
