National League Team: Dunedin Thunder
Rick is an outstanding technical goaltender with size and speed that makes him tough to beat. Especially down low where his butterfly style takes away all of the shooter's options. Intense work ethic, a professional approach to the game, and a natural affinity for the position have seen Rick rise rapidly through the goaltending ranks to have joined the Ice Blacks at the young age of 20. Rick will be a mainstay of the team for the next decade.
