Tristen Ripplinger has been a scoring threat since he stepped on the ice as a Cochrane General.

The right winger finished second and third in the HJHL scoring race in the past, and this year topped the class of 2023-24. He scored 39 goals during the regular season, the highest as a Gen, and finished fourth overall in points with 61.

Now in his last season with the club, he broke the 100-goal threshold a few weeks ago. Over his HJHL career, including playoffs, he's scored an impressive 108 goals and amassed 218 points in just 134 games. That's 1.6 points per game over three seasons.

"I've been fortunate to play in this league, and it's been fun for the last three years," says Ripplinger. "It's a pretty big accomplishment on my part but I couldn't do with without the guys around me, the coaching staff, Kurtis and Krigel as well. It's not a one-man show, it's the team behind me, so I'm really happy about it."

Ripplinger came to the Gens from the U18AAA Calgary Northstars. He has been a part of the Gens leadership squad from the start and was named team captain this season.
