Newbridge Academy Midget Varsity Player Announcement – Nicholas Savoie
Nico is a big D-man who understands how to play the game. Reads the ice nicely, and gets the puck up to his forwards with ease. Calm with the puck and can be counted upon to play big minutes. Covers a lot of ground when skating backward, and is able to keep up with even the fastest forwards.
