Bantam Draft Profile: Riley Fiddler-Schultz

If Hitmen seventh-round selection Riley Fiddler Schultz’s last name sounds familiar, it’s because the young forward is the nephew of NHLer Vernon Fiddler. Like his uncle, Fiddler-Schultz is the type of player to never give up on the play and provides a spark when needed most.

Here’s a quick run-down of the forward:
