Relentless is the best word to describe him. He played in 1 game for us this year and did a great job. Enough for us to know that he would make a great addition both off the ice and in the net for us next year. Connor is an exceptional athlete that gets better every time I see him. Really excited to sign such a well regarded person and player and continue our mission of creating a team built around local players and ones that come from outstanding organizations such as the Boston Advantage.” Said Generals GM/Head Coach Bryan Erikson.
