"Trevor Connelly is one of the top forwards I've ever had in my career, simply put he is an offensive weapon that would consistently evoke fear in the opposition the last two years for our club. You could always count on him to be the best player on the ice and someone to truly enjoy watching."- General Manager Jason Koehler
