“We are extremely proud to have an athlete like Dustin join our growing team, and it was important that we found a player who exemplified all of the qualities of a great player including skill, toughness and leadership. Dustin is one of the NHL’s great young players who also has a strong conviction for charity work which is in line with Combat’s interest in the grassroots approach and we look forward to working with him for many years to come as his career progresses” said Steven Sutherland, President of Combat Sports. “Dustin’s outstanding track record speaks for itself and we are excited for what the future holds for both Dustin and Combat.”
DLO himself added “I’m very excited for my future with Combat Sports, and proud of the fact that, like myself, my sticks will be made in North America. I am confident that Combat Sports, the LA Kings and myself are in for brighter and better things in the future.”
