A recent Fernie Ghostrider signee wants to make an impact immediately.
Kyle Ford is one of three Calgary products to sign with Fernie last week.
The 18-year old spent last season with Northwest Calgary Stampeders Midget Double-A where he finished third in team scoring with 26 points in 27 games.
Ford says it’s a cool feeling to sign with his first junior team.
“It was a lot of effort put in and as soon as it happened it was like I lost a whole, heaping, heavy weight [off] my back.” describes Ford. “It was awesome.”
Ford says he’s working tirelessly on his skills this summer to ensure he makes a difference in his rookie season.
“I’ve got a couple goals just in terms of working my way up to becoming one of the top rookies of the year and being noticed by every team and being kind of hated out there.” says Ford.
Defencemen Sawan Gill and Josh Dalquist also signed with the Ghostriders last week.
