Our next Season Ticket Holder story takes us to Justin Gonsalves. He is a returning Beast season ticket holder and is coming up on his third year as part of the Beast community.
One of the most memorable Beast hockey experiences for Justin was the road trip to Toledo during the 2018-19 season. He loved the atmosphere and the experience of watching the Beast on the road in a different venue.
Every Beast ticket holder is allowed to pick their own seats in the arena. Justin’s chosen seats are right by centre ice and facing the benches. He chose these specific seats because, “It is a perfect view of the entire ice that allows me to see the players and the action unfold right in front of my eyes.”
When Justin was asked for his thoughts on the Beast community he stated, “It is a really nice and tight knit and everyone gets along.” He misses the community due to the abrupt ending to the season due to Covid-19, but looks forward to being back in the arena for the upcoming season!
Every fan has a favourite player and Justin’s selected Erik Bradford! When asked why, he gladly exclaimed, “I remember his first game in a Beast uniform. We were playing against the Indy Fuel and Bradford scored with less than a minute left in the game to tie it up, then he potted the OT winner! It was an awesome debut."
