Over at Copper & Blue Jonathan has the info (courtesy Vancouver Province) on Springfield’s signing of WHL forward Garet Hunt (in photo).
Craig Bonner, an assistant coach for the Giants, says “he’s our energy guy. You see what he does on the ice, he’s the same way in the room. He’s a big part of our guys getting ready in the room and that’s what you need from your 20-year-old as your leader.”
He’s an extreme longshot based on the math and his size, but simple googling gets you all kinds of rave reviews from fans and he seems to have been in a lot of fights that people talk about.
He’s invited to Oilers camp and will be shuttled along the trail after that, probably Stockton to start and then they’ll see from there.
It isn’t signing a big bonus contract and lets not get ahead of ourselves, but he’s got a contract to play pro hockey and if it doesn’t work out well he’s got a helluva long time to do something else with his life.
