Tuton focusing on his defensive play
Ceebees’ assistant coach Peter George said Tuton has been the exact player the team thought they were getting and “what we hoped he would be.”
“He has been very solid defensively and a player that makes very few mistakes,” he said. “His quickness allows him to compete against our opponents’ top lines.”
George said Tuton is proving to be a team guy after playing the Mount Pearl series with eight stitches in his ankle.
“Tuton will prove to be one of the top defensive D- men in the leauge, no question about it,” said George.
George said that although Tuton hails from Whitehorse, he is quickly becoming immersed in Ceebees’ culture and “takes pride in wearing the jersey.”
A new experience
Preconceived notions about Newfoundland usually quickly change when people new to the province live here for the first time.
Tuton has been no different. He can really feel the Irish culture when he gets out in St. John’s.
The people have also helped ease his transition to life on the rock.
“Everyone is so social. They make it easy to feel at home,” Tuton said.
