Tough key defender who struggled with injury in 2018 when restricted to just seven games.

In his first six games of the year, Ambrose recorded 38 one-percenters, a clear example of his immense work rate and eagerness to put his body on the line for his teammates.

Ambrose is an elite runner for his size with a terrific ability to use his closing speed and get to the contest.

Whether playing on tall or small opponents, Ambrose gives his all and will push for more consistent game time throughout the 2019 season.
