The waiting was killer.
Zac Funk was watching the live stream of the WHL Bantam Draft with his dad and both were anxious to see where he would land. Once #43 came around, the waiting was over and Calgary was the destination.
“I was really happy being drafted to the Hitmen, I got up and hugged my dad,” he said. “I’m happy with how it all played out and I can’t wait to get things started. I’m just so excited for the future.”
