Enforcers Add Second to Roster

Elmira, NY - The Elmira Enforcers are pleased to announce their second official signing for the 2018-19 season, Kyle Stevens.

Stevens played for Coach Brent Clarke last season with the Danville Dashers. In 40 games, he racked up 13 goals, 10 assists, and 37 penalty minutes. Stevens would end the year in Winston-Salem with the Carolina Thunderbirds, earning 5 points in 5 games played (2 goals and 3 assists). 

When asked about signing with the Enforcers, Kyle said: “Elmira being a new team and an arena that used to be an ECHL arena, it just seemed like a good hockey base there. It's somewhat close to home, and then I heard Brent was going to be there, so I really wanted to go try to make the team.” 

Before joining the FHL, Stevens played in the GMHL for the Meaford Knights and the WSHL for the Vancouver Rangers. He is not completely foreign to the Southern Tier, however, having played for the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Knights of the EHL for 19 games in 2014-15, before moving on to the Bay State Breakers of the USPHL Elite.  

“From what he lacks in size and stature, he makes up for in grit and heart. He always gets those key goals in situations when you need one.” Coach Brent Clarke said about Stevens. “[Stevens] came out of free agent camp and got better and better. Out of the thirteen goals he had for me, I bet twelve of them were important.”

In addition to the roster addition, the Enforcers front office has been abuzz with activity as the calendar continues to progress. The Enforcers have secured major sponsorships with Arnot Health, Bully Hill Vineyards, Corning Inc, First Transit, Hilliard, Multi Media Services, and New Britain Roofing Co., and are still in progress of securing more sponsors for their upcoming inaugural campaign. First Arena is still being upgraded to enhance the arena with a fresh look for their fans, as well as securing ice inside for the first time in over a calendar year.
