Vitali Gushak is probably one of the most talented Ukrainian players in the EHL. Despite his young age he's quickly matured in a tremendous offensive power. The now defunct Hamilton Hammerers made him their season 12 1st round pick and set great expectations in this small sized speedy forward who shattered records in the Ukrainian Junior League. As a rookie he finished at the top of the Hamilton scorers with 91 points playing alongside Mike Vaillancourt and Sonny Laduke. The Halifax Lemmings were quick to sign him as a free agent after Hamilton was dismantled. Already a regular on the Team Ukraine in the EHL World Cup competions his teamates gave him the nickname 'G-Force'. Vitali Gushak's childhood idol is Ukrainian Hall Of Famer Gustav Barnak.
