Currie returns for 2nd season with Mustangs
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.
