Player info: Colten Mayor captured the Alberta Minor Midget AAA Hockey League scoring crown two seasons ago with 29 goals — including seven game-winners — and 71 points in 34 regular-season games.
The Flyers assistant captain also led his team in playoff scoring with 20 points (10-10) in 12 outings.
“I thought I grew as a player last year,” said the six-foot-one, 155-pound winger. “I got a lot of ice and gained plenty of experience, as well. When you’re used in every situation you mature a lot. The coach had a lot of confidence in me and put me out in all key situations. I was a go-to guy there.”
Now Mayor is adjusting to life as a Western Hockey League player.
“As a new experience, it’s just awesome,” he said. “You learns things every game, every practice, so as the season goes on you should improve as a player.”
Rebels head coach Jesse Wallin said he likes Mayor’s playing style.
“Colten has had an opportunity to play with some of the injuries we’ve had. He’s got lots to learn, like most young players do, but having said that, he’s got some incredible ability,” said Wallin. “He has great vision with the puck and has made some really good, smart plays.”
