Get to Know...Ben Walter

In this edition of "Get to Know", we cover Monsters center Ben Walter. So far in this young season, Walter is second on the team with 11 points (5g/6a), and is tied for the team lead in goals scored. Walter's play has provided a consistent scoring threat night-in and night-out. Currently an assistant captain, Walter's leadership has been priceless so far this year.
