Adam Erne knows what he brings to the table every time he hits the ice.
The sturdy left winger, who has begun his rookie season on the Syracuse Crunch’s top line, is responsible for doing the dirty work down low, getting to the front of the net and creating space for his linemates.
Listed at 6-1, 210-pounds, Erne is continuing to develop as a power forward to make the next step to the NHL.
“He has a good work ethic, a big body, and he’s been good down low,” said Crunch head coach Rob Zettler. “He’s still got to work on some of the details of his game, you can find him a lot with his stick up in the air. But overall, he’s been fine. He’s working hard and getting chances on the power play and five-on-five.”
