What GRC says: Fall 2017 The defacto replacement for Mitch Callahan, Elson is a gritty, feisty banger who is capable of scoring some nice goals as well. Elson's game is predicated on his work ethic, willingness and leadership, all of which draw rave reviews. He has the ability to skate with good players and also to drop the gloves when necessary to protect them when needed.
