After successful youth career in Colorado, Aurora’s Fritschler ready to take next step in hockey career
Curtis Fritschler earned plenty of opportunities for himself playing youth and high school hockey in Colorado.
Now, the Aurora native is looking at options to continue his career at the junior hockey level.
Fritschler said the 2021-22 season with Cherry Creek High School was “a great season.”
“I made a lot of friends for life there,” Fritschler said. “We were not able to reach our end goal of winning states, which I feel like has made me want to train harder and improve every day. I’m very grateful that I was able to come back home from Seattle for my senior year and made memories that will last me a lifetime.
“Last season at Cherry Creek prepared me for the next level by maturing me and preparing me being able to battle through adversity.”
Growing up in Colorado, Fritschler said he was “fortunate enough to have exposure to great hockey programs everywhere.”
For his 15U year, he played for the Hyland Hills Jaguars and before that, from 8U to Pee Wee, he played for the Arapahoe Warriors.
“My goals for the future are to play hockey at the highest level and for as long as I can,” said Fritschler. “Preferably I would love to play NCAA Division I hockey but there is great hockey everywhere after juniors, including NCAA Division III.”
