Graduating Player Profile – # 17 Riley Hillis

Coming over in an offseason trade with the Neepawa Natives, our next Blues Graduate, Riley Hillis brought a whole lot of grit and hard work and timely goal scoring to the Blues.

Tallying 16 goals and 16 assists in 40 regular season games along with 3 goals and an assist in the 2015/16 playoffs Riley was a key part of the Blues success this past season. Rileys’ physical play not only cleared the way for himself but for his line mates. Strong on the face-off he was put in many key draws. He also possessed a wicked wrist shot that found it’s way to the back of the net in many timely situations when the Blues needed a goal.

On behalf of the Blues and their fans we would like to wish Riley all the best in his future endeavours.
