Comments: Darryl was raised just outside of Port Elgin and played junior hockey in Kincardine and Owen Sound before he attended Colgate University on a hockey scholarship. After short stints in Europe and the United States, “Chico” returned to play for Lucknow and finally the Winterhawks. He is entering his fifth year with the club and is the only player to have ever won the title of “Top Defensive Player”. His favourite part of being a Winterhawk is playing with the guys he grew up with, and Chico is another Blue Devils fastball player. After the birth of his second child, he claims that “parenting” takes up a lot more time, instead of hobbies. Darryl’s pregame ritual is watching Brent MacDermid’s long field walk.
