HAND:

November 21st, 2020 vs Saskatoon Stallions: – Ries showed that he was not afraid to jump up and make big plays. He was very smart with his pinches and never second-guessed himself. While he made a pinch he did a great job forechecking. His shot is very heavy and when he shot from the point it looked like he preferred to look for the tips out front. The Stallions got A LOT of 2 on 1’s this game and Ries was often left alone to defend them and he handled them very well often taking away the pass and trusting his goaltender to get the job done. – Tyler Thode

November 20th, 2020 – vs Saskatoon Stallions: Ries was very aggressive jumping up into the play and rushing the puck up ice. Generated quite a few scoring chances that way and made it tough on the defenders. Had a few hard shots from the point that were either deflected just wide or the goalie made a good save on. Engaged attacking players at his blue line with either a nice hit or accurate and effective stick checks. – Nathan Chapman
