TRADE: Acquire Cech from Lakers

The Almaguin Spartans are thrilled to announce that last night they acquired standout veteran defensemen Adam Cech (97) and a 12th Round Draft Pick from the London Lakers for a 10th Round Draft Pick and a Player Development Fee. Cech has spent the past three seasons in the WSHL with El Paso, Ontario and Oklahoma City. During that time, he registered 64 points in 139 games. Prior to that Cech played in the MHL B (Russia’s 2nd Highest Junior League) for Platina.

Spartans General Manager David Forde had this to say about the addition of Cech “We made an aggressive move yesterday to acquire Cech. It’s not very often that defensemen like Cech become available, so we felt we really need to jump at the opportunity to acquire him. I knew going into this off season, we had some big holes to fill on our back end with Austin and Morton, advancing to pro and college hockey and that I needed to find two defensemen that could replace those big minutes on the back end and provide stability to our entire team. I feel very confident that Cech is a player that can fill one of those two holes. He’s a guy that can play 25-30 minutes a night vs the other teams top lines. Cech is a good skater, makes a great first, is good defensively and has great size and toughness at 6’3, 220 pounds. He has proven he can also produce offense over the past three seasons in the WSHL. I think with the opportunity he is going to get on our club and the high level of coaching he will receive from Myles and Gary, that can produce 35-45 points this season. We are also expecting Cech to bring leadership and experience to our club on and off the ice. He has played four years of high level junior and knows what it takes to be a top player and top team.”

Welcome to the Spartans Adam Cech!!!


Spartans Sign Swede Nola

Swedish Defenceman Nola Signs

The Almaguin Spartans are thrilled to announce the addition of 1999 born Swedish Defensemen David Nola from Vallentuna BK J20 Elite. Last season David registered 6 assists in 26 games, which was his first full season at the J20 Elite Level.

Spartans General Manager David Forde had this to say about this addition to the Spartans back end “Nola is a smooth skating dman, with a great first pass. He see’s the ice well and is always focused on the defensive end first. Nola possess great size at 6’2 and 190 pounds and isn’t afraid to use his big frame. We think Nola will be able to contribute big minutes on the back end in a shut down role, but we also feel he has offensive upside which he can develop and utilize under the coaching of Gary and Myles.

The hardest thing to recruit in this league is strong defensemen, but I think we have done a great job so far this off season bringing in strong mobile dmen that can play within our system and I think our dcore will be the back bone of our team this year”.

Welcome to the Spartans David Nola
