On making the move to hockey in the UK, Collin stated, “I’m thrilled to be joining the Fife Flyers this season. I have heard great things about Kirkcaldy and the organisation and can’t wait to meet the staff and teamates in preparation for the 23/24 hockey year. To the fans of Fife, I look forward to seeing you in the stands throughout the season!”
On the addition of the 6’2” Shirley, Flyers’ Coach, Tom Coolen commented, ”Collin is a big, smooth skating forward. He is a former top scoring player with the University of Saskatchewan and will give us size and a scoring touch. With his speed, he can play any position.”
