The Neepawa Natives are pleased to announce the signing of 6’2 defenseman Ben Hilhorst from Killarney, MB.  Hilhorst played last season with the Pilot Mound Buffaloes of the CSSHL (Canadian Sport School Hockey League).

“Ben is a big strong d-man that takes pride in his defensive zone but has an offensive upside.  He sees the ice well, has a great first pass and plays very physical.  He is hard to play against and he plays an honest hockey game”, stated Neepawa Natives General Manager Myles Cathcart.
