"Stu has been a quiet leader for us at times, but at other times, he has been a vocal leader," said Stampede head coach Kevin Hartzell. "People around the USHL know of him as a tough guy, but he is always looking out for his teammates. He cares about the guy sitting next to him and does his own job very well every shift," added Hartzell.
"Zach is one of the hardest working, most fiercely competitive players in the USHL," said coach Hartzell. "Even in practice he has a way of elevating the level of competition for everyone, helping them play their best."
"Nick continues to do whatever it takes for our team to win," said Hartzell. "He is very unselfish and a good all-around team guy. He always leads by example and is very committed to working hard."
