Tuesday's Dump & Chase: Calling In The Sheriff

New, comments

Colton Sissons has been a nice little addition to the lineup. Adam Vingan has a great piece up about his maturity (linked). It is no coincidence that he's been named captain of his junior team, and then the AHL team. So now he's up with the big team, and making an impression. Given OTF's track record with nicknames as of late, I figure it's time for him to have one assigned.

The Sheriff.
