The 5-foot-11, 181 pound forward played in a total of 133 games over the past four seasons and scored 69 points (29 goals, 40 assists). Kozun proved to be extremely durable, missing just three total games during his collegiate career and played in all of the team's 34 contests during both his freshman and sophomore campaigns.
Before his time at school, Kozun played three seasons of junior hockey with his hometown team, the Nipawin Hawks in the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League (SJHL) from 2011-14. During the 2013-14 season, he led the league with 38 goals and finished third in overall scoring with 65 points as an alternate captain.
McGauley has been producing at the best rate of his career as of late, securing eight points in his last seven games on three goals and five assists. A native of Wilcox, Sask., McGauley is third on the team in scoring this season with 36 points on 13 goals and 23 assists.
The 22-year-old is in his second professional season and was signed by the Capitals in October of 2015. He suited up for 39 games with the Stingrays during his rookie year in 2016-17, scoring 17 points on four goals and 13 assists.
