Spartans Captain Re-Signs

For Canada Day the Spartans wanted to give our fans something special and we really think we have with the announcement of the return of Captain Gustavs Stikans. The 2003 born Latvian defensemen returns for his 4th season in the GMHL. Last season Stikans had 18 points in 39 games.
Spartans Assistant Coach/Defense Coach Bryan Austin had this to say about the return of the Stikans “I’m really excited to have Gus back with us for his final season. Gus was a warrior for us last year, playing big minutes every night. He battled through injuries a lot of the season and never complained. He is a team first guy that plays an honest game. He puts the team ahead of himself and that’s a big part of being a good leader.
Gus will be a good example for our younger defensemen and I feel with us having a much stronger team and d core this season, that Gus is going to be able to produce a lot more offensively. He’s a guy I can throw out in any situation and a guy I rely on heavily to match up against the other teams top players. “
Welcome back Gus
