Julian Makary is a great example of a small but skilled minor hockey who refused to listen to many of his sceptics. At 5 foot 3, he wasn’t able to crack the Nova Scotia Major Midget Hockey League and only in his 3rd and final year of eligibility did he earn a spot with Pictou Weeks. A 10th round pick by Summerside in the Maritime Hockey League, he eventually was traded to the Amherst Ramblers. His hard work and determination paid off and he averaged almost a point game last season and now will be joining the Philadelphia Rebels in the NAHL in hopes of eventually earning an NCAA opportunity. Makary’s development was hindered by a major concussion but he has fully recovered and John Moore caught up with him after a recent training session at Civic Arena in Halifax.
