American Defenceman Charlie Dodero has put his name on a 2 year contract with Flames.  The 6’2”, 220lb blueliner iced last season at ICEHL champion Olimpija Ljubljana where he posted 7 goals and 13 assists in 25 league starts.  The previous term was also a championship season when he helped French side Rouen to the title with 4 goals and 19 points in 27 games.  Ljubljana was his most recent ICEHL stint but not his only thanks to a pair of terms at Graz99ers from 2019 to 2021 and another at Vienna Captials in 2021-2022 ahead of his French foray.  In 136 ICEHL and EBEL games, the 31 year old posted 56 points in 136 starts. 

After 5+ seasons on the North American pro circuit, including 256 ECHL games between Greenville Road Warriors, Idaho Steelheads, and Greenville Swamp Rabbits, as well as 46 AHL appearances at Syracuse Crunch, Dodero made his Euro debut in 2018-2019 with Swedish Allsvenskan side Tingsryds AIF.

The Illinois native, spent the bulk of his Junior career at Kitchener Rangers and Sudbury Wolves in the OHL from 2009-2013.  In 258 games, Dodero had 11 goals, 58 assists and 286 penalty minutes.

“We were looking for an experienced guy who has been able to help his teams win trophies, and Charlie fits that bill exactly,” said Paul Dixon.

“He is a big body, plays a very tough, physical brand of hockey, and he competes every second he is on the ice.  When players say someone is hard to play against, Charlie is the kind of player they are speaking about. He also has the skill level to be a very effective top Defenceman and we are looking forward to what he is going to bring to our Defensive unit.”
