Colts forward Kyle Clifford is built like a Mack truck. He weighs 200 pounds and stands six feet tall. The 18-year-old Los Angeles Kings draft pick nearly stuck with the NHL squad at the beginning of the year.
He was just about qualified to play against 35-year-olds, and now he’s going into the corners against 16-year-olds.
“There are different ages out there, and there are bigger guys and younger guys,” Clifford said. “But I treat every player the same way, whether he’s 16 or 21 years old.
“We’ve got to play hard, but you’ve got to know your limits and play fair.”
