“It’s been a great start, and now I am looking forward to seeing what the next two years can bring,” Watters said of his return.
The 5’11”, 200lb winger joined the side after 5 minor pro seasons in North America; the last 4 with Reading Royals in the East Coast Hockey League. In 223 ECHL starts, including his opening year split with Orlando Solar Bears and Idaho Steelheads, Watters had 27 goals and 95 points to go with 228 penalty minutes. He also added 7 points in 25 playoff outings.
“Ian has certainly blossomed here as a much more offensive player than we would have anticipated when he first arrived,” admitted Paul Dixon.
“When you combine that with an exceptionally hard working style, and the drive to never give up on a play or a shift, you get what we have which is an exceptionally valuable player in the line-up.”
“We are thrilled that he has agreed a 2-year contract and we are looking forward to seeing him back here when the season gets underway.”
