Zach Bogosian proud to be first Armenian in NHL

Winnipeg Jets defenseman Zach Bogosian is proud to be the first Armenian in NHL.

In an interview with New York Hockey Journal, Bogosian told about his Armenian heritage.

“Yeah, growing up with an Armenian heritage … you know, my grandparents are still pretty hardcore about it. My great-grandfather came across when the genocide started,” he said.

“It’s just a hard-working family from a small town. I mean, if I can do it, anyone can do it. As far as being the first Armenian, obviously I’m very proud of it. But it’s not just on me; it’s on my parents and everyone who helped me throughout my whole career.”
