The DALROD sponsored Peterborough Phantoms welcome back our netminding staff Adam Long and Dan Lane.

The Peterborough trained and Peterborough based netminders, will be again hitting the ice with the Phantoms this season. Dan is 22 and showcased his fantastic talent for the Islanders last season, gaining a 91.2% save average. Adam who is 20 years old, has also been training hard and impressing the coaching staff and fans, with a 93.3% save average in 10 EPL games last season.

Head Coach Slava Koulikov commented “Both guys are dedicated, hardworking players, that have taken notice and worked on their game with Janis and the rest of the Phantoms team. Dan, did fantastic in taking the Islanders to the Finals of the Cup and semi’s of the Play Offs. Adam, was called upon last season to step in and he showed us all we can trust him in between the pipes, as he played very well. “

Slava continues “I am looking forward to continuing on working with both lads and building on their success.”

Adam commented on his return “After an enjoyable season last year it made my decision easy to sign back with the Phantoms. The support from the fans and organisation was great last season and gave me a lot of confidence when stepping on the ice. I hope this season I can continue to improve and contribute to a successful season ahead.”

Dan Lane also spoke to us on rejoining the Phantoms “I am looking forward to the new season working under Slava and alongside Janis and Adam again. I’m excited to meet up with my new and existing team mates. We have all been working hard off the ice over the summer , and we are all striving for success and silverware.”
