Adam Ginning provided a solid performance and leadership at the recent World U18 Championships, captaining Team Sweden to a bronze medal and recording 4 points in 7 games. “Ginning is a smooth and savvy two-way defender who brings confidence and composure on the puck” says ISS Director of Scouting Dennis MacInnis. “He was outstanding during the recent World U18 Championship, where he exhibited the type of poise and composure with the puck that one would expect from a 10-year veteran. He possesses good passing skills and is a smooth skater with good mobility. The captain provided leadership with his physical play all tournament”.
