Riverkings find diamond in the rough from Prout Rhode Island HS in 01 forward Kyle Smith.
The 6’ 175 forward comes from the same summer program (run by George Maris @CHC) that produced RK’s Jake Nitsche, Dylan Torres, and Xander Mavrogiannis.
Coach Quarters said: “When former Riverking Jake Michael Nitsche called me and said he found a forward in Rhode Island that can not only help us but we can also help him and that he fits our aggressive style of play, I tend to listen. Kyle is a hard forechecking player who excels at puck protection, speed, ice vision, and a stoic but passionate approach. After meeting with Kyle and his Dad it was obvious their hard working background fits our culture and felt Kyle is a perfect fit. Kyle no nonsense style of play and work ethic has our staff feeling we have found a diamond in the rough and will be a welcome addition to our team”.
Kyle will be attending Lincoln HS this fall.
Welcome to the Riverkings family!!
