A new Fernie Ghostrider says he’s going to keep pushing himself to get to the next level.
Sawan Gill comes to Fernie as one of four Calgary products to be signed by the club this off-season.
Gill says he likes to cover both ends of the ice.
“I like to skate the puck, I think I can make that first pass, I’m really confident with the puck.” says Gill. “I think I can make my teammates better and help play defensively as well.”
Gill says Fernie is the perfect place for him to play.
“I’m really excited to sign with Fernie because I have family there.” explains Gill. “It’s a beautiful town.”
Gill says he used to spend his summers in Fernie with his uncle.
The 2000-born blue liner put up six goals and 16 assists in 39 games with the Midget AA Calgary Canucks last season.
The Ghostriders also added defenceman Ryan Van Boven to their list of commitments earlier this week.
Josh Dalquist and Kyle Ford are the other Calgary prospects joining the Riders this season.
