Gentry has been with the Stars\’ youth organization for the past four seasons and was coached by Stars\’ GM Reggie Hall for the past two years. Hall also coached Gentry for his first two seasons at Keller. Hall said, \”Wyatt has matured tremendously in the past four years and become a real offensive threat every time he touches the ice. He has always been a strong skater with breakaway speed, but the last two years Wyatt has worked to improve his situational awareness and defensive zone coverage. He hits, he skates, has a cannon for a shot and is solid in all three zones. He is as well rounded as you could ask for in a player.\”
The Stars are very happy to add another local player to our roster.
