Hustwick returns to Tigers 2

Telford Tigers are pleased to announce the return of defenceman Josh Hustwick who will be icing once again for the Club’s Laidler team.

Hustwick is yet again another product of the Telford junior hockey system. The now 26-year-old has come through the rankings icing for Telford Venom, Trojans, Titans and then finally Telford Tigers.

After joining Telford Venom in 2008, Josh progressed his way through the competitive junior leagues before finding himself on a senior roster for the Telford NIHL North 1 team in 2012, which at the time was known as the Telford Titans.

Since then, Hustwick has iced for Telford Tigers across a multitude of rosters and leagues, where he has made his mark each season. During the 2017/18 season, Hustwick was selected as the season’s top defenceman for the Tigers 2 squad where he earned himself a respectful 35 points for the season, positioning himself as one of the top point scorers for defenceman in the Laidler North 2 league at the time.

Telford Tigers 2 coaching team Scott McKenzie and Doug Wildman are delighted to have signed Josh for the upcoming season, commenting:

“Great to see Chip [Josh] back this season. He had a steady last season, but we know he has more to offer the team. Josh can read the game well and is solid in defence, but we want to see him joining the attack more and supporting the forwards in attack. With a better level of fitness Josh could be one of the best defencemen in the Tigers team.”

Hustwick is looking forward to returning to Telford Tigers commenting;

“I’m happy to sign for Tigers for another year, it’s been a weird couple of years with Covid taking over and stopping playing. The squad Scott has built looks strong and will definitely be in contention. I can’t wait to get the season underway and see the lads again”
