Head Coach Sean Robertson says his team plays in a results based league, and his players are certainly providing the results lately.

Winners of 4 straight, the Generals boast the league’s highest scoring differential at plus 30 and will now enjoy some time with family over the holiday break.

Robertson credits his team’s chemistry that’s formed after a slow start to the year.

“I think we struggled with chemistry the first couple months, because we weren’t getting guys out to practice. It’s hard to build your team when you only see each other a few hours a night, once or twice a weekend.”

 

He also credits his players for buying in to the game plan and mindset he’s been teaching.

“I don’t worry about offense too much with these guys. Everybody wants to play offense and score. You have to want to play good defense, and that has to be their mentality. The more we have the puck the better defense we’ll play.”

 

The Generals are also one of the more versatile teams in their league, and Robertson uses defenseman Tanner Korchinski as an example, who’s been used at forward as well.

“He’s a big body, he’s in shape, and he moves well and shoots well. These guys all want to play and he’s no different than anybody else. He’s a perfect example of being willing to play left wing, right wing, he’d probably play net if we gave him the chance. In fact I know he would. We have a lot of guys in our dressing room like that. They’re just happy to play.”

 

The Gens have narrowed their game to just 4 points behind the first place Redwings.

They’ll pick things up January 6th in Fort Saskatchewan.
