Was a bit surprised to see Matt McCardle go so high. Drafted by Dubuque and started the year there. Was traded to Muskegon and they shipped him to the NAHL
He went high in the Phase two yes. They must have seen something in him. Sometimes players change with different coaches and players around them. We had several guys come in that butt heads with coaching or weren't a good combination with the players already here. Look at the Force once trade deadline came and we got some key players it changed our locker room.
Tyler Hynes, Mathias Israelsson, and Cam Ashley really changed the locker room. Before they came the locker room was quite before the game. Once they were here the locker room was always up beat. I just liked walking by the locker room and hearing them getting motivated.
