On Monday night, the Sarnia Legionnaires Jr B Hockey team announced the signing of 17-year-old forward Riley Roberts.

The 6’ 1” 175 pound forward  played 40 regular season games with the Mooretown Flags Junior C last season and had 36 points (18g,18a).  In the playoffs Roberts played in 5 games and had 4 points (2g,2a)

"I think of myself as a power forward type player I'm a taller guy and like to take the body but I can also finish too, I like to use my size as my advantage and open up some ice and put the put in the net when I have to."


Robert's is looking forward to the next level after a successful season with the Flags.

 

"It's going to be challenging, I'm going to be working this off season trying to get stronger, bigger, faster, just to get ready for this season."

 

"Great feet, great hands he really reminds me of the Arsenault kid in Lambton Shores, I think he is going to be an impact player in this league as he grows into his body." said Coach Dan Rose
 

"We'll give him some ice time this year.  I know he's a young kid he'll get some power play time because he's a real skilled kid."
