Second year Golden Rockets forward Carson George is working hard to be a solid player at both ends of the ice this year.

One of the big changes on the team this year, according to George, is the team’s ability to pick up points on any given night.

“We have the ability to win some games, even if we don’t play well,” he said, thinking about certain games where the team had to fight to come back “We come back, work hard, and play well, both offensively and defensively, as a team.”

This year George has already topped his point total for last season with a focus, not only on scoring, but also being a set-up man.

“It has been OK, although I haven’t scored as much as I wanted. I have been working on the two-way game ever since I was made a centre. Playing more defensively has to be there,” he said. “It has been a little bit of a tough transition but it is getting better.”

As for the team George believes that they have come together as a group.

“It is a pretty tight-knit group. It has been nice. Winning is always fun,” he said. “I want to win a championship.”

George has also been appreciative of the support people in Golden have been giving the team this year.

“It is really cool. there is a good atmosphere here with the fans and us winning. It is really nice to see.”
