You have to realize here in Idaho last few years in the WCHL was nice but not very exciting hockey, especially since most the players really had no shot at the NHL... now though, this is going to be so exciting to have younger players who work hard and have more skill

Hobert is a terrific offensive talent, who possesses some soft hands and is an excellent skater. I wouldn't necessarily call him a "finesse" player though because he's not afraid of the physical play and doesn't seem to mind getting into it either.

Peter Runkel is a Dman who played at Mankato State last season. An excellent stay-at-home defenceman who's quite good one-on-one.

Abel scored well in the preseason and has played well in the 3 games the Phantoms have played with I believe a goal and some assists.
Thanks for the update on Abel. I'd really appreciate it if you could give me periodic progress reports on him. He was very good at Mankato State and IMHO one of the most underrated players in the WCHA last season.
