DUNDEE, SCOTLAND – The Dundee Stars are delighted to announce the signing of Canadian defenseman Emerson Hrynyk for the 2017/18 EIHL season.
Emerson joins the club from Mount Royal University where he iced on 88 occasions over four seasons.
Head coach Omar Pacha is no stranger to recruiting from Mount Royal after signing forward Cody Cartier for Manchester Storm from the University last season.
Coach Pacha was delighted at the addition of Emerson commenting, “Emerson is a hard-nosed, stay at home defenseman that can bring a bit of offence as well. He is tough to play against and is extremely strong physically. He will complement the other defenseman on the team well“.
