He continued with the sport for ongoing years since ¨ [he] was good and always had fun playing.¨, although he enjoys watching hockey games, he adores playing much more.

For future plans, Giordano wants to ¨[play] junior hockey next year which is required to play college hockey and [he] will see where [he] can go from there.¨ Giordano already plans to play Hockey in his college years.
