For any good team in this sport, they need puck moving defenders that know how to get the offense going and be responsible. The better they can see the ice, the better. For the NA3HL Northeast Generals, they have Eddie Mulligan, a well rounded defender that nearly has a point per game and is superb at finding open space. His Head Coach Daryl Locke says the following about him “ Eddie has been an excellent addition to our back end. He works on all aspects of his game in practice and it translates well in game situations. What impresses me most about his game is his vision. He does a great job of looking off defenders and makes impossible passes in tight seams to streaking forwards in transition. Those type of passes are extremely hard to make and he does it with ease. He’s also an excellent defender. I don’t think he gets enough attention for the way he shuts down opposing top forwards. He has a great stick and is always in the right position. I believe the ceiling is high for Eddie and I think going forward colleges will be lining up for his services.” Mulligan loves the winning culture for his NA3HL group and is driven to help this team win the Fraser Cup before climbing the ladder of development.
