A local hockey product who's done pretty well made a return to High River Thursday.

Jeremy Colliton of Blackie played 19 games with the New York Islanders last season in the NHL.

He's impressed with changes at the High River Rec Plex rink...

"I was here last year and I don't think I have been in the rink since then and it's great what they have done and I played a year or two of minor hockey here and it's good for the community."

He was in town helping out with the High River Hockey school....a school where he was a student not that many years ago.
