HIGH-SCORING HUNTER JOINS CRD AHEAD OF WEEKEND SET
COLUMBUS, GA - The Columbus River Dragons announced that forward Ryan Hunter will slot into the lineup for this weekend’s series against the Carolina Thunderbirds.
The 21-year-old Hunter has 40 goals and 96 points in just 32 games with the GMHL’s Bradford Bulls. Standing 6-2 and weighing 185 lbs. the Toronto, Ontario native blends speed and skill with a touch of grit to round out his game. Hunter was named to this year’s GMHL All-Star Game, and last season won an SIJHL championship with the Red Lake Miners and was named the league’s top forward after posting 25-36-61 in just 27 games.
Hunter’s signing falls under the FPHL’s rule allowing teams to sign up to three graduating seniors or overage junior players and add them to the 24-man roster. Any player signed under this guise must play five regular season games to become playoff eligible.
