Brian Hart began the season on the bubble.
After participating in training camp with the Syracuse Crunch, the rookie forward began the season in the ECHL with Greenville. Hart was reassigned back to Syracuse and returned to Greenville three more times in the first three months of the season.
Called back up to the Crunch on Jan. 9 when the team was dealing with rash of injuries, Hart has taken advantage of the opportunity and earned a regular spot in the lineup.
“We’ve had a lot of injuries in the last couple months, and other guys have had to step up,” Hart said. “That’s given me an opportunity. You hate to see guys go down, but it gives other guys a chance. I’m just trying to make the most of the situation.”
