PROWLERS ACQUIRE WRIGHT & OZOLINS IN BERLIN DISPERSAL DRAFT
The dispersal draft for the 12 players on the Berlin River Drivers protected list took place this morning, with the Prowlers acquiring forward Nick Wright and defenseman Edgar Ozolins.
Wright, a New Boston, MI native spent the past two seasons with the River Drivers, playing 87 games and recording 4 goals and 19 assists. An enforcer, Wright has been the most penalized player in the FHL and has had the most fighting majors for two years running.
From Riga, Latvia, Ozolins started his FHL career with the Danville Dashers in 2013-2014 before splitting the 2014-2015 season between Danville, Dayton, and Steel City. In 47 games with the River Drivers last season Ozolins had 3 goals and 12 assists for a total of 15 points. In three seasons in the FHL he has played 148 games, more than any other European player in this league. "I am looking forward to playing for Coach Pace again, who coached me my rookie year, and playing with many guys I've played with and against over the years. I love the arena and all the exciting things that take place on and off the ice during games and the effort the team gives every night. I will bring team support, a good attitude, work ethic and a smile to the locker room" says Ozolins.
