by Jon Kliment

The Elmira Enforcers of the Federal Prospect Hockey League are proud to announce that three more players are signed on for the 2020-2021 season as Brendan Hussey, Kyle Stevens, and Yianni Skropolis have all agreed to terms with the Enforcers.

Hussey, a 23 year old forward from Boston, MA, finished his second season with the Enforcers in 2020. Through two seasons Brendan has played 83 games while scoring 14 goals and 18 assists for 32 points with a +8 in the regular season. Hussey seemed to thrive in the postseason however as he played in all 6 games the Enforcers have played, scoring a goal and an assist with a +3. Brendan has played a bottom six role for the Enforcers and has shown an adaptability to play with anyone on the roster over his two years. “I'm excited to come back and play with a great core group of guys we have, I also want to give the fans something to get excited about again after the quarantine ended our season. I'm sure the fans are just as antsy as we are to get things going again and keep our 10 game winning streak alive from last year.” Hussey said when asked about returning.

Stevens, a 25 year old forward also from Boston, MA, finished his third season in the FPHL and his second with the Enforcers. Kyle has put together impressive numbers as through 100 games played in the Neon Green and Black he has 32 goals and 68 assists for 100 points making him a point a game player. Stevens had put up 9 points in his last 5 games of the 2019-2020 campaign before the season had to be suspended. Entering his 4th season in the FPHL Kyle will be looked at as a veteran leader in the room as the Enforcers will be looking to finish off a championship run. “I wanted to come back to Elmira because I love the environment there, the fans, the area, the group of guys coming back, and the ownership are all awesome. Everything here in my last two years has been great and with the season ending sooner than we expected, in 2020, we feel we have unfinished business. I can’t wait to get the season started and finish what we started.” Stevens told media members about his return.

Skropolis, a 23 year old forward from Cambridge, ONT Canada, saw his rookie season in the FPHL cut short with an injury, however his speed and hockey sense make him an intriguing returner to Elmira. Despite only playing in 27 games and registering a goal and two assists Yianni provided a lot of upside offensively ass his speed and awareness with the puck as well as his grit made him an impact player game in and game out. Despite his size Skropolis was in two fights last year and certainly showed Elmira fans that he fits in. Yianni was quick to respond about his decision to come back “My first season in Elmira came to an end a little too early, but I knew I wanted to come back. I miss the boys and the great fans at First Arena. Playing in Elmira is an amazing family environment and this year we are going to bring home the cup.”

“We know that last year’s team had a great chance to finish the job and win a championship. All of these players deserve the chance to finish what they started. That being said we also know that an offseason changes things. While we put the corps back together we will have spots available and we are hosting our third pro placement camp with an eye on finding some diamonds in the rough.” Robbie Nichols told reporters.

The Enforcers will be heading back to First Arena this year as they attempt to claim the Commissioner’s Cup in their third season.
