“Big, strapping center in the Minnesota High School league. Going to North Dakota next year and destined to be an NHLer with 6-2 frame, 205 pound build. Guaranteed, hard-skating power forward.”
Warroad head coach Albert Hasbargen
“I have coached Brock for three years, when he started out as a tenth grader he skated one period of JV and three with the Varsity. By the end of the season his line was creating more scoring chances than the top two lines. He continued his upward push as a junior centering our top line. His work ethic, size and tremendous skills put him at the top of High School Players as a senior. I believe he will continue to rise on the ladder of hockey players, he can easily add several pounds of muscle, he is very coachable, he does stuff with the puck in practice and games others can only dream about, his work ethic along with self discipline will continue to move him upward. This young man not only has great skills, but is a great person as well.”
We were thinking about Rich back home, but I thought we did a great job getting mentally ready for this game. We're still in a big playoff push and we found a way to get two points. It's not easy. It hit our guys pretty good [Monday] night. We did a great job as a group.
