the boys. “Kolten and Hunter have been a big part of our offence in the months of September and October. They play in all situations
and many nights against the opposition’s top players. They are highly skilled guys and are key pieces to our powerplay. We are extremely lucky to have them in our lineup on a nightly basis. We look forward to them continuing their hot start as they will be two of the guys we rely on to drive our offence.”
