“Last summer we were able to not only return a good core of players to the fold for this past season, but we were fortunate to be able to get several of them to agree 2 years with us,” said Paul Dixon.

“Sometimes when you do that you might be returning some guys out of contractual obligation, but we certainly can’t say that about any of these guys who were all key players in a very successful run.” 

“All of them had excellent campaigns in helping us collect a trophy and helping us advance to the depths of Cup and Playoff competition.  We are excited to have them all with us again as we try to get ourselves set up for success next year.”

“As a starting point it is great news to already have players of this calibre signed up this early in the off season.”
