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!!!
