Ice Breakers Sign Koresky

Mentor, OH - The Mentor Ice Breakers are happy to announce that defenseman Ryan Koresky has been signed to a standard player contract after being claimed on waivers from the Carolina Thunderbirds. He is the second former Thunderbird to join the Ice Breakers this week after Mentor traded for forward Tommy Mahoney in exchange for future considerations. 

Koresky, 37, played 4 years of college hockey at SUNY-Oswego, scoring 47 points (7-40-47) over 102 games. The Midhurst, ON native has a 5'10", 185 lb frame and will add another experienced presence as well as defensive depth to the Ice Breakers locker room.

In a corresponding move, defenseman Joseph Keenan has been placed on waivers.
