Audio: Quick hits with Ethan Bear

Ethan Bear has shown well against the LA Kings this season, and with four goals and nine points in 30 games overall has been able to craft a regular role on an Edmonton blue line that has benefited from his offensive-minded play. Speaking with LA Kings Insider, the former Thunderbird offered a full-throated endorsement of Seattle as an NHL market and shared a few words about his former teammate and current Ontario defenseman Austin Strand. Bear also spoke about how he conditioned himself well over the summer to take advantage of an opportunity with the Oilers and the home team’s approach to an early December divisional game.
