This coming season Harry Gulliver will do something only one other Ogden Mustangs player has done in franchise history up to this point: Playing four seasons in Ogden.
Gulliver already enters this, his final season of junior hockey, with 160 career games played, which is the fourth most in Mustangs history. He’s 26 games away from breaking the all-time record, set by the only other guy to play four seasons, former all-time leading scorer Schuyler Seyfert.
Along with games played, Gulliver is also seventh all time in assists (89) and eighth all time in points (137). Gulliver has improved his numbers each season with the Mustangs, with career-high numbers last season of 21 goals and 33 assists for 54 points in 45 games.
But beyond personal statistics and milestones, after playing in three consecutive Thorne Cup Finals, this season is all about bringing home the hardware from that championship game.
“I just wanted to finish in Ogden,” Gulliver said. “I love the fans, and I’m ready to win a Thorne Cup in my last year. I’ve had a great three seasons here, so I don’t know why I wouldn’t come back for my last one and finish what I started.”
Gulliver had multiple highlight-reel plays throughout the past season, showcasing his speed, puck-handling ability, vision and passing.
We had plenty to choose from, but here’s last night’s goal of the game, featuring some sick puck handing from Harry Gulliver and the finish by Lukáš Vacín.

An 6-foot-1-inch, 188-pound Essex, England native, Gulliver continues the Great Britain presence on the roster. There has been at least one player from England or Scotland on the Mustangs roster for the past seven seasons. Those before him have all gone back home to play professionally.
