Red Wings Head Coach Brian Casey is confident Burt will grow into a very good Junior Hockey player in time. “Kobe is an excellent skater with good skills. Our organization were impressed how well he played in the exhibition games, and he looked more confident by the game by playing in all situations. We will continue to support and develop Kobe as a player, so that he continues to challenge himself in practices and games to compete at a high level”.
