It was during his time with the Warriors that Dudek realized his potential and his ability to go somewhere with the sport.

“I played on a good line with Bobo Carpenter who’s now at BU and Nolan Redler who’s now at UMass Boston. We really started developing something there and went to these national tournaments and started doing well as a team,” said Dudek.
