Having never played hockey in his childhood or adolescence, but possessing a huge frame combined with immense strength and athleticism, Druss Deathwalker, at the tender age of 25, was looking for an outlet to forget his violent and sorrowful past. As a walk-on, albeit a very intimidating one at that, Deathwalker was given a shot by the Aberdeen Lynx in the Scottish Hockey League to make the final roster spot just before the 2019-20 season began. Having travelled from his mountain home with no equipment at all, the team scrambled to find skates and pads that would fit. The hulking Deathwalker took it in stride and within a few days he was wobbling on skates with his new teammates learning the basics of skating. He was a fast learner and with his powerful stride was soon not even the slowest skater on the Lynx. 

 

He progressed quickly but was held out of the first couple of months of the season to get more practice time, work on his shooting mechanics and learn Aberdeen’s systems. He made his debut in early November 2019 and immediately became a fan favorite as he sent the opposition winger cartwheeling with a monstrous hip check. He finished the 4-3 win with 5 hits, 1 shot on goal, and a standing ovation as he left the bench at the end of the game.

 

Druss Deathwalker soon became the face of the Aberdeen Lynx, fear sprouting in the heart of every player that saw the menacing red-clad giant with a snarling Lynx head crest bearing down on them. The team would not fare well, finishing 7th out of 10 teams in the Scottish Hockey League, but the name Deathwalker was bordering on legendary status in the coastal town. He would finish fourth on the team in scoring with 7 goals and 7 assists in 19 games. 

 

With the SHL cancelling their 2020-21 season due to the pandemic, Druss set his sights on another league he had heard about - the VHLM. He registered with that league and signed on with the Saskatoon Wild for their playoff run which ended in six games. In limited ice time, he was a -1 and had four hits. But, his potential was obvious and he was selected 15th overall by the Mississauga Hounds in the following draft. 

 

He is currently leading the Hounds in hits, plus/minus, power play goals, and hat tricks as they try to jump back into a playoff spot.
