Justin Fulton is working hard to make his last season in the KIJHL one to remember.

A combination of skill and determination

Justin Fulton is a force to be reckoned with in the KIJHL.

Going into his third season as a Golden Rocket, centre Justin Fulton  is a combination of grit and finesse which has made him a great asset to the team. In the last two seasons the player from Quesnel, B.C. has averaged almost a point a game while at the same time racking up 128 minutes in penalties in 60 games.

“I like to think I am a goal scorer but in the end I try to be an all around player,” Fulton said.

Playing hockey since the age of four, he first got into hockey with his father and brothers who all played at different levels.

After being traded from Kamloops in his first year in the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League  Fulton has found a home in Golden.

“I like the town, there are good people here and it is a good community.”

As for the team, Fulton has been enjoying his time working with the players and coaching staff.

Even though the Rockets have had some tough losses in the early part of the year, Fulton sees a bright season ahead.

“We have to get going. It is still early in the season and we will get stronger as the season continues. We want to make the second round for sure,” Fulton said.

As for being a veteran on a younger team, Fulton sees his role as a player to help get the younger guys going when they need it.

“We need to help them and support them. They may not be used to it yet but as the season goes on they will get better. You tell them to play hard and they are working hard to adjust,” said Fulton.

Fulton gives a great deal of the credit to the community for the support the team has received over the years he has been here.

“The more fans that come to see us, helps us play better I think. Things this year are great with so many fans coming out to the games. It means a lot to us to see the barn packed,” Fulton said.
