Organizational Comments:
What GRC says: Summer 2018 A power forward at the AHL level, Megan put it all together two seasons ago and led the league in goals. Last season he returned to his normal level, though that might have more to do with the shared affiliation he played in. Megan drives to the net and uses his size to gain position and make plays. He is responsible defensively and has a top end work ethic. Capable of playing anywhere in the lineup, Wade is a battler who never gives up on a play and provides energy and grit.
