His 34 assists were tops among all NAHL defensemen and his plus 21 rating ranked in the Top 10. In 170 career NAHL regular season games, Hartley recorded 95 points from the blueline (25 goals, 70 assists). Prior to playing in Wenatchee this season, Hartley played two years for the Dawson Creek Rage.
Norm Einarson (Langruth, MB) and Elsie Einarson, nee Anderson (Riverton, MB) are the proud grandparents of Hartley. “I guess he picked up a few things. He’s always been a student of the game. We spent a lot of time watching and analyzing games.
