They Said It:

Low: "It was just a matter of two things; I want to help the team win first and foremost and I want to advance my career. I think I took some big strides especially in the second half of last season. ... [Head Coach Kirk MacDonald] gave me a lot of opportunity and I tried not to let him down. I think having a good start to the year is going to be key both for myself and for the team."

MacDonald: "Brayden had a tremendous impact on our club in all areas last season, taking on a leadership role and becoming one of the best two-way forwards on our team. He plays physically, provided offense in clutch situations and is respected in the locker room. We're happy to have this important piece rejoin us for another season."
