BRM #72 LD Hill, Christopher – Very big defenseman who played a physical game today.

BRM #88 F Giansante, Robbie – Utilized his presence in the goal area to score the opening goal of the game. Showed good competitiveness and is very strong on the puck down low in the offensive zone.

BRM #30 G Blacker, Benjamin – Blacker looked very good in todays game. He has excellent quickness and is a good skater. Very quick upper and lower body. He showed good vision through traffic.

WLO #10 F Mantz, Gary – Mantz showed good skating on the rush and the ability to unload his shot effectively at top speed.

WLO #11 D Bird, Nic – Nic handles the puck very well. He is a very good skater and showed the ability to skate the puck out of trouble. Nic advances the puck well on the rush but isn’t afraid to jump up in odd man situations and get deep in the offensive zone trusting his skating ability to help him get back into defensive position.

WLO #13 F Collins, Jamie – Collins showed great forecheck on the penalty kill. He’s hard to knock off the puck despite his small size. He was able to force turnovers and turn them into scoring chances.

WLO #14 D Bissonnette, Nicholas – Nicholas is a very good skater and he sticks with his man very well along the wall and follows the play well. He’s physical along the boards in his own end and battled hard defensively.[/sociallocker]
