Chris McCabe reinvented himself in 2018 to maximum effect. As someone who made was a consistent performer in defence in the Development League for the Northern Blues, a change was needed for McCabe and it yielded immediate results. The former defender was given a chance as a forward and he took it with both hands, missing only one game after playing one solitary game in three seasons. With a focus on applying pressure and hitting the scoreboard, McCabe is one of a number of players who has been challenged to elevate his game in order to progress the Blues to the next level.
