Striving To Make A Niche:
Hunter, Papineau Look To Establish Themselves

"Right now, it's the best I've seen both of them play here, " said head coach Steve Stirling. "They're being smart and patient. They're great kids who have paid their dues. They've been knocking on the door and I just have to find them enough ice time so they can show what they can do. That's a problem I don't mind."

"The young kids (Papineau and Hunter) have taken the ball and they're running with it," said Stirling. "They give us flexibility and options at the forward position. It's a win-win situation."
