Veteran Forwards Return

08/04/2010 7:27 PM -

This year’s Rhinos team will see many new faces but fortunately returning forwards Tyler Ridgedell and Frankie Posillico will help ease that transition.

Tyler Ridgedell 

Ridgedell, a power forward will bring his trademark physical play, and toughness, but will also be looked upon to also carry more of the scoring burden this season. 

“Tyler knows what I expect of him, he has all the tools, and was one of our top forwards at the end of last season.

I expect him to take up where he left off, being a physical presence, but additionally we need him to start filling up the net offensively like he has in the past”.

Frankie Posillico

Posillico showed good offensive skills last season.

Already crafty with the puck, his emerging physical play only proved that he’ll be a huge asset for this seasons team.

“Frankie was a very pleasant surprise last season, he came here and adapted to a different style of playing from what he was used to, we challenged him to be a more complete player on both ends of the ice and he really responded well.

We’re expecting him to only get better and better. This could be a breakout season for him”
