Assistant coach Jeff Hutchins said “Todd and I are happy that we can continue to work with James next season. He has become a valuable player to the organisation over the last couple of years, His ability to go seamlessly back and forth from forward to defence has been a huge asset, and He has an infectious personality and is a good teammate. He is willing to do whatever it takes for the benefit of the team, and players like this are a real asset both on and off the ice.”
