The Dalrod Phantoms NIHL 2 are happy to announce three returnees for the 17/18 season.
Dale Jowett is entering his 11th season with the team, playing in 214 games with a points total of 57 Goals and 89 Assists(5th on the Islanders all time list) and 604 PIMS. Dale is known for his ability at both ends of the ice, a player who works tirelessly for the team and is not afraid to stand up for his team mates. Missing the second half of last season due to injury Dale can't wait to get back to playing again this season. 'Obviously I was gutted to miss out on the second half of last season and miss the treble. The boys worked so hard for it, coming so close the past few seasons it was great for us to be able to do the business last season. I'm excited to be back playing some stronger teams and seeing how much we can push them' Dale is a player that you can rely on in any situation, and is great on the penalty kill. Stevie is looking forward to getting the best out of him this season. 'Dale is one of the best two way forwards in the team, he reads the game well and makes the right choices in the right areas of the ice, I'm delighted he's coming back.'
