    Good for Scott. Not so good for the River Hawks.

  • Rich Lescarbeau

    Devastating loss combined with all the seniors. Our only hope is Connor sticking around

  • Bob Neal

    A great talent who didn’t seem to produce up to his potential. I think Folin will be a bigger loss. He can be a star in the NHL in a few years. Hopefully our Riverhawks have some talent coming in this Fall. Connor Hellebuyck please stay in school !!!

      im hopin Frolin is a star with the Wild

      • ChuckGandCrew

        He will be. He’ll be a top 4 defensemen on any team in the NHL. But he’d excel with the Wild’s system.

    Good Luck, Scott! Thanks for the memories and helping the team rebound from the 5 win season! I hope you play well except vs. the Bruins!
