#AHLFanFridays: Aaron Szawielenko

This week’s #AHLFanFridays winner is Aaron Szawielenko, a longtime hockey fan who has grown up with each version of the San Diego Gulls and cannot wait for the AHL’s 80th campaign to begin to create new memories.


I couldn’t be more ecstatic about the Gulls being back in San Diego. I used to go to games with my dad as a kid and now soon enough will get to take my son, Robert, to Gulls games. He gets to grow up going to hockey games regularly now.


Bert may only be one but he’s already been to a Ducks game and we frequent baseball games; he loves watching sports. Now we have many years ahead of us to watch the Gulls fight here at home to bring home the Calder Cup.


Thank you to the Anaheim Ducks, the AHL, and now the Gulls for bringing hockey back to San Diego!
