The Dalrod Peterborough Phantoms 2 are delighted to announce the next two signings for the 17/18 season. Again another pair of returnees in the form of a prolific and speedy forward Connor Stokes and stand out goaltender Dan Lane.
Stokes is a product of the Peterborough and Chelmsford Junior systems, but has spent the majority of his senior career (albeit a small stint back at Chelmsford) in Peterborough, split between the Islanders and Phantoms. Connor even at the age of 24, brings experience and a certain aggressive style to the team. He has tallied up 72 goals and 58 assists in 98 games for the Islanders giving him a total of 130 points; 5th in the teams all time points list. Stokes has a wicked shot and bags of speed, creating issues for defensemen and goaltenders all over the league. Upon his return, Coach Stevie Johnson has this to say about Stokes," Stokesy gives his all for the team every game, and can be a real game changer on his day. I’m looking forward to another good season from him this season.”
The Dalrod Peterborough Phantoms 2 are happy to announce their next two returnees for the 17/18 season Conor Pollard is a product of the Peterborough Junior systems, and apart from spells at Wightlink and Milton Keynes, has been playing his senior hockey in Peterborough. In 105 games for the Islanders, Conor has posted an impressive 81 goals and 109 assists, which puts him 4th on the Islanders all time points list. Conor has great stickhandling and passing ability, making him a nightmare for other teams to deal with, and Stevie is delighted to have him back ‘Conor is a crucial part of this team, I think he could be playing at a higher level so obviously we’re delighted to have him back this season, as he is someone you can always depend on.’ Conor scored a goal in his only game for the EPL Phantoms last season and was the top scorer for the Islanders in the cup competition that the Islanders eventually won. He was recognised by his teammates at the end of season awards, receiving the Players player of the year trophy. He is looking forward to seeing what we can achieve next season. ‘Last year was a remarkable year for us winning all three trophies and the team chemistry is the strongest I have ever seen it, I’m looking forward to playing some stronger teams in a bigger league and showing everyone what we’re capable of.’
