Currie returns for 2nd season with Mustangs

by Mustangs Staff

Continuing the news of players returning this season, Ian Currie is back with the Ogden Mustangs for the 2018-19 season.

“I’m really looking forward to getting the season underway,” Currie  said. “We’ve got a handful of new faces but should have a really good  group of guys. It was a long summer, but it’s time to get back into the  swing of things, and can’t wait for the season to start.”

Born in 1998, this is Currie’s final season of junior hockey  eligibility. At 5-feet-10-inches and 168 pounds, he’s a speedy  sharpshooter who proved last season that he can step up in key moments  to score big goals.

Currie was eighth in team scoring last season with 21 goals and 23  assists. He stepped up in the playoffs and was third in team scoring  with five goals and seven assists. He averaged exactly a point per game  overall.

He’s got high expectations for himself and the team.

“After last season, I don’t want to settle for anything less than the  Thorne Cup,” Currie said. “We came so close, and it got taken from us.  This is our year.”

Currie officially calls Franklin, Tenn., home and is part of a  pipeline of TPH Thunder alumni out of the greater Nashville area who  have been key contributors in Ogden, including Max Dorfman, Zeke Zeier,  Ryan Mascali and Kerry Kruzel.
