He had 5 assists, for 5 points and 101 PIMS. “Chandler is a kid with a big frame, at 6’3 235 pounds. He is more of defensive defensemen, and he loves to play a physical game. The thing that really impressed me with Chandler is his ability to clear the front of the net to help out his goalie. He even was used on the PP, and kids couldn’t move him out of the front of the net. He is going to be a good pick up for our club.” Those were Coach Jaskiewicz comments on Chandler.

Coach Aaron Davis had this to say about his newest Swedish Center men. “Hampus is a center, after losing Jean Cobo, and Carl Sandsten to aging out, it was important for us to make sure we could find a good solid center ice man to help replace their roles from last season. Hampus has lots of speed; we are excited to have him be a part of our club this year.”
