“It is very special having broken the Storm’s single-season assists record. I take pride in making the guys around me better, so earning that achievement and being able to help consistently create offense for both me and my teammates means a lot to me. I think it is more of a testament to our team as a whole and the year we are having collectively. We have been great both offensively and defensively and I am just happy to play an important role in that. It definitely adds a little bit more excitement being listed in the same category as a player like Jaden Schwartz. His record was able to last a long time and he made a huge impact on the organization. He is a tremendous player and definitely a guy who I look up to.” – Forward Jeremy Wilmer
