Elmira Enforcers Announce Return of League’s Leading Scorer

by Jon Kliment

The Elmira Enforcers of the Federal Prospects Hockey League have resigned Tyler Gjurich to a contract ahead of the 2020-2021 season.

Gjurich, 27 from Hatfield, PA, had himself another phenomenal year as he put together an 83 point season with 40 goals and 43 assists. Since being traded from the Watertown Wolves Tyler continued to push out offensive production and capitalized on his chances for 15 goals in 19 games with 6 of those resulting in game winning goals. Gjurich brought a winning mentality with him in the trade and was honored by being named one of the 2019-2020 offensive players of the year, his third straight year receiving the award.

When asked about choosing to come back to Elmira Tyler said “My decision to come back to Elmira was a no brainer. In my short time here last year I was treated so great by owner Robbie Nichols his family and the fans. They're so supportive and loud every night and we thrive off that energy in the building. We have a lot of unfinished business to take care of from the shortened season last year and with all the core veteran guys returning and new Coach Ray Trembly, I wouldn't want to be anywhere else".

Tyler has found success everywhere he has played and was the Captain of the 2017-18 Watertown Wolves who won the Commissioner’s Cup.

Robbie Nichols was very excited to get this contract signed “Tyler brings a huge offensive upside to the game and to be able to have depth with scoring ability makes this team not only competitive, but a championship contender from the moment they step on the ice. Between Gjurich and Mahfouz we have the top two all-time points leaders in league history. This season we want the Cup!”
