“Aaron is a player who opposition teams hate playing against. He is a gritty player who gives his all each shift and simply loves playing for the Hawks. As the league improves each year and teams strengthen Aaron is a key player to have on board and someone that will do anything for his team. ” said coach MacKriel.
Tom King returns for his fifth season at the nest, bringing valuable experience to the team. He has proven himself as a key player both on and off the ice whilst displaying dynamism and endurance.
Hawks coach Daniel MacKriel: “Tom surprised me a little last season and I was impressed with the way he plays. He is big and strong, takes the body and is extremely effective in front of the net. He is brilliant in the dressing room and a great character to have on the team. Iâ€™m looking forward to seeing Tom better his performances this year and confident that he is capable of doing so.”
