couldn’t pass up adding the premium short print tricolor and quad-color patches to the Aito Iguchi collection. These @upperdecksports cards are gorgeous and probably the only sets that will exist of this viral sensation. Aito Iguchi @aitoron34 -
1. Aito is an 18-year old Japanese offensive stickhandling whiz from Saitama, Japan. He fell in love with hockey at the age of 4 watching his dad, a civil engineer, playing roller and ice hockey in Japan.
2. Aito began playing organized hockey at 5 and was dominating the minors.
4. In 2019, Aito was selected 104th overall in the @ushl draft by the @waterlooblackhawks, a team that has rostered other Japanese players, such as @teraoyuuri and @yukimiura36. He has not played with the team yet.
I’ve been following this kid for years, and I’m truly hopeful that he achieves greatness! At the very least, his highlight clips will live on the Internet forever and continue to inspire young hockey players from all over the world.
