The Dalrod Phantoms NIHL 2 are happy to announce three returnees for the 17/18 season.
Dale Jowett is entering his 11th season with the team, playing in 214 games with a points total of 57 Goals and 89 Assists(5th on the Islanders all time list) and 604 PIMS. Dale is known for his ability at both ends of the ice, a player who works tirelessly for the team and is not afraid to stand up for his team mates. Missing the second half of last season due to injury Dale can't wait to get back to playing again this season. 'Obviously I was gutted to miss out on the second half of last season and miss the treble. The boys worked so hard for it, coming so close the past few seasons it was great for us to be able to do the business last season. I'm excited to be back playing some stronger teams and seeing how much we can push them' Dale is a player that you can rely on in any situation, and is great on the penalty kill. Stevie is looking forward to getting the best out of him this season. 'Dale is one of the best two way forwards in the team, he reads the game well and makes the right choices in the right areas of the ice, I'm delighted he's coming back.'
The Dalrod Phantoms NIHL 2 are delighted to announce their next 3 signings. Forwards Clint Herring and Kenny Bavin and Utility player Shaun Yardley have agreed to return to for the 17/18 season.
Last season’s Player of the year Clint Herring will be entering his 8th season in Peterborough colours, and is a true leader on the team, it was a Career year for him last season, posting 27 goals and 15 assists in 26 games, including a hat trick in the 5-2 cup semi-final win. Clint is a nightmare for opposition defenders, he is a big lad who is difficult to knock off the puck, and is always getting in the right positions in front of the net to create scoring chances. Coming back this season was a no-brainer for Clint ‘After such a successful season it was an easy decision to return. As a team the bond we have is like no other and I can't wait to get started. It's going to be a tough season with the new teams in the league but I am confident we can rise to the Challenge’ always willing to stand up for his team-mates when needed, Herring is 3rd on the Islanders all time penalty minutes list, and 5th overall on the all-time goals list, scoring 88 goals in 147 games. Coach Johnson is very happy to have him back next season ‘Clint fully deserved his player of the season award last year, he stood tall in the big games and led by example scoring important goals, he gets the job done every night and puts 100% into every game’
