THE REBELLION

Standing against the evil empire of space nazis was the rebellion! Sure they were outnumbered, outgunned, and outmatched, but they had the force and a certain young Jedi to help them beat the empire back!

Princess Leia- Sebastian Aho

Princess Leia was the first female princess sci-fi heroine to hit the big screens. Sure she looked all glamour and glitz on the outside, was very important, and consistently seemed to need help, but she can take care of the bad guys all on her own. Aho can always use support from his teammates but give him space one on one and forget it. Down goes Jabba.

Admiral Ackbar- Trevor Van Riemsdyk

“It’s a trap!” Now you know who I’m talking about. The trap here is thinking the TVR will let you skate on by. Nope. The only question here is if TVR can swim underwater well enough or not.

Mon Mothma- Brady Skjei

We never got a chance to really get to know the leader of the rebellion. Mon Mothma helped organize the rebellion into what it is. We knew she was important, but we never got the chance to see it in the movies other than a few briefings. Skjei was well known before coming to Carolina, but the fans never got to really know him past seven games.

Wedge Antilles- Brett Pesce

Master pilot and defected Imperial. Wedge Antilles was a master of precision. He was also a very lucky man, who used luck as a skill instead of a crutch. The same can be said of Brett Pesce. Pesce on the ice is where he works best. A criminally underrated defender who we all hope gets better soon enough to see him back on the ice.
