Garet Hunt (born October 14, 1987 in Maple Ridge, British Columbia) is a Canadian professional ice hockey winger who is currently playing for the Stockton Thunder of the ECHL. He is best known for his agitating playing style.

Playing career[edit]

Hunt began his junior career with the Chilliwack Chiefs of the British Columbia Hockey League (BCHL). In 2004–05, he joined the Vancouver Giants of the major junior Western Hockey League (WHL). He would go on to play four seasons with the Giants and establish himself as an effective agitator, while helping the club to the 2006 President's Cup championship as WHL champions and the 2007 Memorial Cup championship as Canadian major junior champions (although Hunt missed the entirety of the 2007 playoffs due to a broken leg).[1] In his final year of junior in 2007–08, he recorded WHL career-highs with 18 points and 239 penalty minutes in addition to a league-high 27 fighting majors.[2]

Undrafted at the end of his junior career, Hunt signed a minor league contract with the Edmonton Oilers of the National Hockey League (NHL) affiliate, the Springfield Falcons of the American Hockey League (AHL).[2] Hunt was then assigned to the Stockton Thunder of the ECHL for his professional rookie season in 2008–09. During his rookie season with the Thunder, Hunt played 69 games and contributed 16 points (5 goals and 11 assists). He also finished second in the ECHL with 248 penalty minutes.
