I've watched Kieper the last 3 years and in my opinion, he has become the best 2004 goalie in MB. Great attitude too. You will be happy with him.

Sam Huck! A Pat! Wow, this hearkens one back to the Pat's golden age when another player named Huck, the great Fran Huck, dazzled fans back in the day at Regina's Exhibition Stadium. Lets hope it is a sign of a second coming ...
