The Bradford Bulls have made two huge forward signings while solidifying the crease. Forwards Tyler Quintos, Garrett Nichol and goaltender Hunter DePorter have been added to the fold in pursuit of the 2015/16 Russell Cup Championship.

Tyler Quintos was picked up by the Bulls after trying out for the club in a tournament in Toronto. Quintos is a product of the Toronto Titans & Markham Majors AAA Minor Hockey Associations. Tyler is close friends and grew up playing with Bulls Assistant Captain and star forward Greg Wilson.  Quintos is a grinding goal scorer -- he uses his body to compete in the tough areas of the ice and scores gritty goals driving the net.

Garrett Nichol is a junior hockey veteran that will be a physical force with the Bradford Bulls. The 1994 Newmarket, Ontario native has played three seasons of junior hockey -- split between the NOJHL & Jr. B Eastern Ontario League. Nichols played his minor hockey with the South Central Coyotes Midget AAA club. Last season in Jr. B, Garrett notched 17 goals, 6 assists in 27 games. He stands 6'2" and 220lbs -- Garrett was training with the Bulls this spring already and will be a welcomed asset to the squad.

Hailing from Miami, Flordia goaltender Hunter DePorter will be a front runner for the crease this season. He spent last season in the USPHL Elite division. Hunter's biggest asset is his size -- Hunter stands 6'5", 230lbs. DePorter flew into Toronto to visit Bradford last week and was signed to the club. Hunter was scouted by former Captain Dalton Mills. Hunter has also spent time practicing with the Florida Panthers NHL club as a training goaltender in his home town.

Looking forward -- the Bulls have re-signed a fan favorite from last season that will be announced soon. In addition to the next installment of the 'Where Are They Now' series.
