Returning Faces: Ryan Frtiz

     Prince George is a long ways from home for Ryan Fritz. The young defenceman is from Rochester, New York, and was originally signed last year by the Nanaimo Clippers, but then traded over to Prince George later in the season. This year he will be joining a very big, and experienced defence crew which he will fit right into with his 6'2" frame, and one year of BCHL experience.

     In an interview, Ryan talks a little about his life both on and off the ice.
