What Was Said by Wedgewood…
I felt really strong. I had a bit of a slow start, getting my feet wet and playing at the next level. Last year, I spent a lot of time in the ECHL and a few games here. At the end of the year, I was pretty happy with myself and very happy with the team — a great group of guys. We did what we wanted to do, which was make playoffs. We gave ourselves to do something special. Next year, we’re all looking forward to what we can do again.

What Was Said About Wedgewood…
Confidence is a big thing with these young guys. We’ve played well in front of him and he hasn’t had a big shot total, but he’s had to make some key saves and that’s what you ask: that your goaltender gives you a chance whether you have 40 shots or 20.- Rick Kowalsky (March 26, 2014)
