HEATING UP: Cole Schwindt
Cole Schwindt is heating up!
Schwindt has notched three goals in his last three games – all three via the powerplay -and two of those tallies were game winners. Whether on the man-advantage, the PK, or 5-on-5, he’s playing with a lot of confidence lately and it’s translating on the scoresheet.
“I think that shows the versatility of the team. We can either play with the lead or play in a tight game, there’s a ton of skilled players in that room, and I know everyone’s battling for each other and it’s just fun to be out there with them.”
CGY Player to Watch: #18 Ben Jones
Keep an eye out for No.18 Ben Jones tonight.
Jones had a three-point effort against the Roadrunners in his last meeting with Tucson, with two goals and an assist on the game-winning goal back on Nov. 4.
Currently, the team has won five games in a row, and they have been winning in a variety of ways, which Jones has been impressed with.
“It shows our group is resilient and willing to dig in when we need to.”
“We are all pulling for each other, everyone wants each other to succeed and that comes with team success, as well, and we all know that.”
