  • REGULAR SEASON
    • In a very limited 4th line role on a superstar team in Yukon Ernie picked up his first goal and a pair of assists finishing with a plus +/- rating
    • Ernies Hits totals continue to climb , even in limited ice time he knows his role and how to be effective and make the best of his time on the ice using his strength and animosity .
    • Going into his 3rd season after being drafted to the VHL Ernie has finally earned himself a spot on the top 6 and PP and PK and his point production has already doubled his career highs at just the half way point.

    • He's built as a terryfying young man, has the ability to be an effective scorer and always wins board battles.
    • With all of Ernies Playoff experiences have given him invaluable leadership skills and the ability to play in clutch moments .

 

  • CONS
    • Some analysts like to call him Casper , Ernie can sometimes disapear on the ice and look lost when hes playing irrationally and head hunting.
    • Consistency , one minute theres a flash of greatness and then it  might be weeks of mistake after mistake before we see another sprinkle
