The Sydney Bears welcome two new young guns onto the ice this season with Daniel Taylor and Taegan Rippon.
Taylor, a Queensland native will make his AIHL debut for the Sydney Bears and Head Coach, Ron Kuprowsky is excited to help develop him as a player as his career begins.
“Daniel is an impressive player at only 16 years of age. We are looking forward to developing him as he starts his hockey career with the Bears. He’ll definitely be one to watch this season and in the coming years.”
Rippon who was born in Sweden but is a permanent resident of Australia began his playing career in Sweden in the U16 Div1 competition with the Jonstorps IF U16. Since making the move Down Under, he has played two seasons in the AJIHL with the Sydney Wolf Pack and has played eight games in the ECSL with the Reach Rebels.
“He’s going to be a great addition to the team this year,” Kuprowsky said. “We’re focussing on developing these young guys so that we can build a strong core of Australian players for 2019 and beyond.”
