Get To Know: Zac Funk
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.”
