NHL Star Supporting the Sharks

A Shire local, 2018 was a big year for Nathan Walker, the first Australian to not only play in America's National Hockey League, but to also play his part in winning the Stanley Cup Trophy for his team, the Washington Capitals. Despite being still just 24 years of age, Walker's journey to the NHL has been a long one, with the Grays Points resident and Kirrawee High School student leaving home at a young age to chase his sporting dream. Also a talented rugby league player with Cronulla Caringbah and the Sharks Academy as a youngster, Walker chose ice hockey, with his decision vindicated by his progress to the NHL, culminating in his teams premiership success. A keen Sharks fan, Walker was at the game against Manly, where Sharks Media caught up with him to discuss a range of topics. See the interview, now playing on Sharks TV
