Meet Your New Bolts

Here's Jay Feasters take on the new additions to the team:

Jason Ward is a solid, dependable two-way player who competes hard and battles,” Feaster said. “He can play center or wing and can be used on the penalty kill. We like his work ethic and believe he will fit in well within our forechecking system. He is a big man who is tough to play against and will provide us with depth and options within our third and fourth lines."

Karl Stewart is a one-man wrecking ball,” Feaster continued. “He skates incredibly well, which makes him a perfect fit for our system, and he hits everything that moves and he hits hard. He is the type of player who gives his team a jolt of energy as a result of the way he plays and he distracts the opposition. He is exactly the type of hard-nosed player we are looking for on our third and fourth lines."

“We are a much tougher team to play against as a result of our deals today and earlier this week, and we believe that toughness is going to be critical as we head down the stretch and prepare for the post season.”

In his first game as a Bolt, Shane O'Brien had no points and was a -1.
