Blair Wentworth is turning back the clock.
After four years of driving opposing defencemen into the endboards and focusing on his defensive assignments with the WHL’s Chilliwack Bruins and the MJHL’s Dauphin Kings, the 20-year-old winger was dealt to the AJHL’s Calgary Mustangs this past summer, and in the process, dealt a new hand in his final season of junior hockey.
“I have to be a scorer for this team, and I kind of like it,” said Wentworth, who has piled up 20 goals and seven assists in 30 games this season.
“It’s a responsibility, but at the same time, you have to make sure you don’t lose any of your roots and you still have to play the game that got you here and that you kind of identify yourself with as a player.
“I do have to keep playing physical. I’m not afraid to fight. I’m not afraid to throw guys around and hit hard on the forecheck or stick up for my teammates.”
The last time Wentworth found the back of the net with such regularity? He has to go back to his time with the Calgary Buffaloes organization.
