Position: Left wing.
‘95-96 stats: 2 goals, 3 assists, 199 penalty minutes.
Local school: Ferris.
Draft status: Undrafted.
Quick check: Pound-for-pound probably the league’s fiercest fighter. Only three rookies in WHL history had more penalty minutes. Sidelined through training camp recuperating from surgery to repair hernia.
Coach’s comment: “He’s back but the summer didn’t do him any favors. The surgery has retarded his development. A lot depends on how hard he works. He’s in a catch-up mode.”
