Herringer ready for playoffs
The 20 year-old wouldn't have it any other way.
As the starting goaltender for the Kelowna Rockets, the Comox, BC resident is ready for the pressure packed playoff games that are in front of him.
"I'm excited", Herringer said after practice Wednesday.
"We are ready. Especially with a lot of people pointing fingers at us this year saying we are not as good as last year and we do not have what it takes to win again, that fuels you".
Herringer is no stranger to the WHL playoffs, closing out series wins against Tri City, Victoria and Portland last season. Starter Jackson Whistle was pulled and Herringer came into the game and earned the win.
"Every game you want to play for the guys that are in the dressing room with you. They battle tooth and nail every game for me, so I want to do the same for them".
