Prowlers Sign Czech Defenseman Adam Heinzl
The Port Huron Prowlers have signed Czech defenseman Adam Heinzl for the upcoming season. The 2022-23 campaign will be his first in North America.
Heinzl has played the last three seasons in the Suomi-Sarja in Finland. After two years with Laser HT, the 26-year-old suited up for S-Kiekko in 2021-22 where he put up two assists and 18 penalty minutes in 23 games.
“We’re excited to have Adam join us in Port Huron,” said Prowlers general manager and head coach Matt Graham. “Players from that level of Europe transition well to the North American game. I’m excited for him to arrive and see what he can bring to our organization.”
