BSM senior Adam Marshall is leaving nothing behind this hockey season, recently earning his 100th career point as a Red Knight.

Marshall has been playing hockey since he was 2 years old, playing association hockey through Wayzata before coming to BSM. Marshall, who currently has 19 goals and 17 assists this season, has played for BSM all four years of his high school career and has a combined total of over 90 games played throughout his time at BSM.

On December 29th, the Red Knights faced off against Maple Grove at the SLP Rec Center. Marshall’s 100th point, which is a combination of goals and assists, was an assist to senior captain Tristan Sarsland late in the 3rd period. Marshall says reaching 100 points was a special feeling for him. “I didn’t really know it at first. And then I found out the next day and was pretty excited,” Marshall said.

Marshall also says that his family has had a large impact on his hockey career. Marshall’s dad, Jeff, played hockey growing up and went on to play college hockey for the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. Marshall says his family was extremely supportive when he earned his 100th point. “Obviously, they’re pretty excited because 100 points is a lot so it means I’ve been doing well through high school,” Marshall said.

Marshall has a style of play that is comparable to no other. Red Knight hockey coach Ken Pauly attributes Marshall’s success to his ability to put the puck on net. “I would say he’s a shooter. He’s always kind of looking to shoot that puck and that’s obviously a skill. I think that’s his main skill set. He’s got a great shot, he plays with a lot of grit,” Pauly said.

Marshall has come a long way since first starting his high school career as a freshman, citing hard work and dedication as a significant factor for his success. “I mean, just probably like a couple hours a day just shooting pucks really helps me and stick handling for hours after practice every day,” Marshall said.

Marshall plans to continue playing hockey after his time in high school. He will play junior hockey for the Bismarck Bobcats of the NAHL. Marshall says he is grateful for the opportunity and looks forward to his new team. “I’m excited to play juniors next year. I think it’ll be fun and definitely a different environment,” said Marshall.
