Willie Dredges: The Transition


Recommended Posts

The season is over. For VHLM player Willie Dredge, it's on to bigger and better things. He has declared for the VHL draft, and have talked to a couple of teams already. He did well in his debut VHLM season, racking up 53 points with 22 goals and 31 assists after a lackluster start to the season. A huge selling point for Dredge is his improvement on defense over the season. Early in the season he had gotten as deep as -14, but climbed back to end the season with a +11. He shows improvement and persistence with a slight comeback season with the Yukon Rush who also had a mediocre season with a great ending, but an obvious disappointment in the playoffs.

Dredge's comments: "I think it's a season to learn from, I didn't start very well when the team was hot, and it hurt my team a bit. I saw the problem and I adapted, with the help of my coaches and teammates, into a scoring role for the team."

Later he talks a bit about his defensive side, his statement being, " Yeah, It was rough transitioning into the VHLM, as there is way more key players and skaters that can keep up. But I think the important aspect is that I adapted, and I'm improving. I'll be ready for that transition into the VHL, I've been preparing for this, I don't want to start my VHL season with a rough patch.

We attempted to ask for the teams he has been speaking with, but he respectfully declined to say for the time being. Thanks for tuning in.
