After attending training camp on an invite from parent club Washington Capitals, where he impressed, Hershey Bears‘ undrafted rookie left wing Nathan Walker(12) becomes the first Australian player to skate in an AHL game
It’s well documented that this is a guy that wants to debut for his country in the NHL.
At 5’11” 185 lbs. he’s not exactly the biggest power forward out there, but knows how to get into those open spaces for scoring chances and plays a hustle style.
In 35 games he’s potted 5 goals and 6 assists with a -1 rating and almost 2 shots on net per contest.
He was pretty much a point-per-game guy as you’d expect.
The only 20-year old forward also had a couple of super-young visits in the Australian pro AIHL.
By all means, the player originally born in the United Kingdom just might achieve his goal.
