“This is a really big change for me and one I’m really quite excited about. I am looking forward to playing alongside my good friends Bob Liu and Brett Matzuka for another year. Learning from arguably the best coach in the sport, Alex Ghesquiere, is a huge opportunity. Competing in a new Division will be fun and who wouldn’t be delighted to play alongside SKYD Magazine’s #2 Most Attractive Male player, Alan ‘the lefty break elf’ Kolick?”
