Forward Jeff Grant and Defenseman Shane Wagner and Glenn Cacaro will be suiting up at the power plant for another year of High Voltage Hockey
Jeff Grant was a late edition to last years William B Coffey award winning team. Due to injuries and call ups, Jeff joined the team on February 10th on a three game try-out. It wasn’t soon after that, that this 6’0 175lb grinder from Massachusetts signed a contract and never looked back. “Jeff was recommended to me by his former teammate Chris Greene, I really didn’t know much about the kid” Coach Walby states. “I was presently surprised how well he fit in with the rest of the guys on and off the ice. I look for Jeff to pick up right where he left off, and for him to be a top six forward on our team”.
Glenn Cacaro also was a mid season addition. After starting the season with the Knoxville Ice Bears, he was with Pensacola and then Surge in the most unusual transaction. “I was in need of a defenseman for the weekend and Pensacola was here at the coliseum for a practice. I noticed that Todd Gordon had two extra defensemen on the ice so I asked him what his plans were for Glen? He said if I wanted him, that I could have him. I really think Gordo regrets the gift he gave us, Glenn turned out to be one of my most dependable Defenseman,” Coach Walby remarked.
Shane Wagner was one of the original six players to be drafted in the expansion draft by the Mississippi Surge. The 6 ft, 190 lb offensive defenseman still has a lot of gas in the tank after his injury filled campaign last year with the Surge. “When Shane got hurt last year it set us back for a few weeks,” Claimed Steve Weidlich “ I Loved the way Shane did what ever it took to win the game, not everyone in this league would sacrifice his body, night in and night out just to win.” Shane suffered a broken leg that kept him out of more than half of the games last season. “He is a true warrior. With his ability to put everything on the line, he will be a true professional for a long time,” said Walby.
