ALTON – Aiden Elliott is a busy guy, but he’s not complaining. In fact, he thrives on it. Even when he’s on Thanksgiving break, he’s putting in work.
Elliott is a 17-year-old senior who once upon a time played hockey for the Alton Redbirds hockey club. But since then, he’s moved a bit east, where he’s in his second year at the North Shore Hockey Academy in Middleton, Massachusetts, some 30 miles north of Boston. It’s a hockey academy that Elliott hopes will help him achieve his goal of someday playing professional hockey.
