“We are so happy for Kyle. He is such a great kid that came in and worked extremely hard. He has a tremendous amount of skill and acted like a 4th forward for us many times. His ability to jump in the rush and also get back and defend made us hard to play against any time he was on the ice. But what makes this so great is what an awesome young man Kyle is. Just a kid that always has a smile on his face and a willingness to get involved in the community at any time. Really proud of him and happy for Lawrence University!” said Generals GM/Head Coach Bryan Erikson.
