As part of developing a winning team, that requires consistent development of talent, for the Charlotte Rush that also required vigilance. Director of Player Development Trevor Jewell talked about Wilder Outman, the defender at the Elite Level who has only played a strong game since jumping to junior hockey and still growing at the USPHL level. In addition, Carson Galin made his debut with the Rush this weekend. He started with Springfield in the NAHL, before heading to Mercer in the NCDC, before coming to the Rush. Galin, like Outman has another year of junior hockey ahead of them after this one and both have started strong this season.
Here’s Jewell on Outman and Galin “We have seen a ton of growth from Wilder since he has arrived in Charlotte. He was brought to our attention last summer in our recruiting efforts. We were able to see him play with Roc City over the summer and we loved everything about his game.
He plays hard, fast, and skilled. Never takes a shift off. We have seen his development skyrocket within the system. He is learning to think the game at a higher level while also making plays at full speed.
He is a big part of our Elite group and a leader among them. If he continues to trust process, he will be a special player.
Carson Galin, a player who was brought to my attention by someone we trust and someone who trusts our program, development model & culture. He was was also a former teammate of Carter Schram, so there is some familiarity there.
Carson is powerful forward with a great skill set who lays it all on the line every shift. He’s good defensively and physical. We felt that the opportunity to get him to Charlotte was too good. He helps us in every way up front, from scoring to speed to physicality. We firmly believe that once he is completely settled, he will flourish here and have a ton of looks from higher levels.
He has been a great fit and we have very high expectations for him.”￼
