“He’s proved he can play at a high level,” said Amerks coach Randy Cunneyworth. “You can look back at the number of times somebody has mentioned him, either the coaching staff, management or the scouts during the big camp.”

Does that mean he’ll have a spot on the Amerks roster opening night, Oct. 10? Considering the number of players already under contract, probably not. But there are always in-season call-ups from lower leagues of youngsters who can skate, hustle and play without fear....</i>
I like what I've heard about this guy. I really wanna see him play sometime. You can't have enough players who play without fear.
