SOLENT DEVILS ARE EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE THE TWO-WAY SIGNING OF KRIS NEKROSEVICIUS AND CHARLIE WEDGE
Nekrosevicius and Wedge join the main roster at the mid-point of the season. Both players have made rapid progression after competing at U18 level last season, where Nekrosevicius accumulated 29 goals and 13 assists in 46 games with Chelmsford, Streatham and Romford and Wedge formerly at Basingstoke and our own junior club, getting 3 goals and 12 assists in 26 games.
Commenting on the signings Murray said
I’m delighted to add these two young British trained players to our roster on a more permanent basis.
Our relationship with the Junior NIHL 2 team is as strong as ever and this is exactly its purpose! Both Charlie and Kris took their chances when we had injuries and suspensions, impressing the entire team.
On hearing the news Charlie said
This is something I’ve always worked towards since juniors it’s a great accomplishment to be part of the team for the rest of the season. Hopefully we can finish off the season strong and score some goals on the way!
It feels amazing to be signed to such a great club and amazing organisation.
I am so thankful, and I am excited to see what the future holds.
The signing of two-way agreements is just reward for both players. Charlie brings energy and speed to our forward line, whilst Kris is a massive presence on the blue line and a true gentleman on and off the ice!
I intend to have them involved for the second half of the season when required, whilst continuing to play regularly for the NIHL 2 team.
Wedge will be wearing # 22 and Nekrosevicius # 2
