TIFFANY ON KRATKY
“Jeff is one of the strongest men in the program, both from a physical and mental perspective. He has a professional approach to his work. Jeff has embraced the expanded role given to faceoff men with our up-tempo transition game. His willingness to do whatever is asked of him is clearly evident as he throws around big plates in the weight room and fights for every ball at the faceoff X.”
