SFU Hockey announces three players that have joined the Clan roster as part of the 2015/16 recruit class, who will begin play with the team in January. All three players spend the 2014/15 season with the PJHL champion, North Van Wolfpack. All three players are eligible for pre-season games, and will join the regular season roster in the second semester.
Mitch Crisanti joins SFU coming off a season where he finished third in PJHL regular season scoring with 63 points(33g 30a) and then led the league in playoff scoring with 36 points (19g 17a). With those sorts of numbers he’s a player Head Coach Mark Coletta was happy to recruit. “We have very high hopes for Mitch and we think he’ll be a big part of our offence.” Crisanti is listed at 6’2″ 178lbs, and has Coletta comparing him to another SFU alumni. “Mitch is a big and powerful forward, something we have missed since we had Ben Van Lare”
A set of twins will also be joining the Clan in January. First is Dyllan Quon, who spent his four junior hockey seasons with the North Van Wolfpack, putting up 100 points (17g 83a) as a defenceman. In his final year, he played an integral role in helping the pack win the PJHL championship, as we claimed the award for Top Defenceman in the league. Dyllan describes his style of play as a “smooth skating, stay-at-home defenceman, who likes to jump into the rush when play dictates it”. Dyllan will be joining a defence group that will be young, but is expected to be a strength of the team.
Along with Dylan, Spencer Quon will also be joining the Clan after a season where he put up great offensive numbers. Finishing fifth in regular season scoring with 61 points(19g 42a) and second in playoff scoring with 32 points (7g 25a), Spencer will be counted on to be an important piece of the Clan attack. He will also being some size to the forward group, as he is listed at 6’3″ 181lbs. He describes himself as a “two-way player, a great playmaker that also has the ability to score” The combination of size and scoring ability will be very valuable as the Clan look to regain their place as one of the top scoring teams in the league.
