The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - SPORTS -

“He was a re­ally fair coach. He was a real hon­est, hard-work­ing guy. I think the play­ers knew ex­actly what he wanted to do and, if you did it, you were re­warded.”

Con­nor Cameron, Char­lot­te­town Is­lan­ders as­sis­tant coach, who played for Hulton in Kingston

“We be­lieve that we have a lot of kids at the cusp of great­ness as hockey play­ers and we’re look­ing for the right guy to get the most and de­velop these kids. We think we’ve got the right guy in Jim Hulton.”

Ge­off Boyle, Char­lot­te­town Is­lan­ders gover­nor, one of the team’s owner and a mem­ber of the team’s hockey com­mit­tee.

“I’m big on struc­ture, dis­ci­pline and ac­count­abil­ity. Those will be three words that we kind of in­cor­po­rate in a lot of dif­fer­ent el­e­ments.”

Jim Hulton.

“I think his mes­sage is pretty clear. He wants the play­ers to suc­ceed.”

As­sis­tant cap­tain Kameron Kielly.

“To­day is an im­por­tant day for the fran­chise. We are look­ing to es­tab­lish our­selves as a top fran­chise in the CHL and win­ning is a big part of that.”

Craig Foster, pres­i­dent of oper­a­tions.
