Opole HK is rounding out the 2021-2022 season roster as the summer recruiting season enters the home stretch.
Head Coach Brad Zangs has been out traveling across the United States from showcase to showcase watching and wrapped up the summer scouting season this week in Vegas.
“Vegas was great for connecting with and getting to see a whole lot of players from across the United states.” Said Opole HK Head Coach Brad Zangs “We are working hard to get our roster set by July 1, and we are close to that goal now.”
“Being able to sign Tucker Evans this season goes a long way to building a championship quality team. A fan favorite everywhere he has been, and a veteran of more than 100 Tier II games, he will bring the grit and blue collar attitude we will take to the ice every day.” Continued Zangs
Tucker Evans has played in the HJHL, AJHL and SIJHL. A fan favorite in the SIJHL, Evans is also a favorite of team mates.
“We wanted to add some more veteran leadership to our team this season.” Said Opole HK Owner and General Manager “Tucker can come in and fill a void that was left by some of our players who are moving on to Pro hockey this year. We expect to be doing the same with Tucker at the end of this season. Taking advantage of U-23 amateur rules, is smart for any player looking to play pro in Europe, or who may be getting red-shirted in NCAA.”
Opole HK finished in second place during its first season in 2020-2021. Looking to build on that success and win a championship this year, Opole HK is out scouting and adding players who want to compete at the highest level of Junior hockey in Europe. Opole HK has also joined the European University Hockey League for 2021-2022 in order to add more games to the schedule, and give players the opportunity to play in several other countries.
Opole HK is looking for a limited number of Forwards and Defense along with one Goaltender for the 2021-2022 season.
