TULSA, OK– Tulsa Oilers coach Bruce Ramsay continues to assemble his camp roster as the 2010-2011 Central Hockey League season nears.
Coach Ramsay signed four more players to his camp lineup, which he hopes will be his most competitive yet. The new signees are defenseman Trevor Turner, left wings Chris Cloud, and Alec Kirschner and forward Chris Myhro.
Cloud, appeared in 56 games for Amarillo last season, registering eight goals and 13 assists for 21 points. The 5-foot-11, 186 pounder garnered respect that Ramsay appreciates.“He’s got a lot of grit and in the players best of the best poll last year was voted the second toughest fighter pound for pound in the league,” Ramsay said.
Myhro played college hockey at the University of Connecticut with Oilers defenseman Sean Erickson. The 5-10, 175 pounder played 11 games for Dayton last year in the International Hockey League. Dayton is one of the IHL teams joining the CHL this season.“Sean talked to me about him, and he has some skill and was good goal
scorer in college (36 goals in two and a half seasons at Connecticut),” Ramsay said.
Kirschner, played in three games for the Oilers last season, before finishing the campaign with Flint in the IHL. The 5-10 180 pound 23-year
old played for Ramsay with Muskegon in 2008-09, after also finishing his college eligibility with Connecticut.
“He’s still young and has a lot of speed and tenacity and is a very effective penalty killer,” Ramsay said.
“Trevor had an all star college career at New England college and he can give us some size and mobility on the blueline,” Ramsay said of the
6-foot-1, 190 pound Turner.
Coach Ramsay siad all four players will be ready for the Oilers pre-season camp which will open on October 4, 2010.
