Torts told the Daily News that he likes the old school style that Newbury brings: Daily News “I like the way Newbs handles himself. I think he’s a little bit old time as a player, he thinks it that w”ay. He certainly turned my head this summer in how – what type of shape – how his body had changed coming into camp. So he deserves the opportunity. He’s played very well down there. He deserves the opportunity, and I just – I like his jam. I think he plays hard for our team.”
Newbury also had three fighting majors last season. He had eight points in four games for the Whale this season.
