Craig Kowalski (G)
The GMB Panthers have signed highly-rated American netminder Craig 'K-Wall' Kowalski.
The five feet eight inch Carolina Hurricanes draft pick (2000) comes to the UK after a season in Italy. Before that he played at North Michegan University and then had four years of successful professional ice hockey in the competitive ECHL and he had three spells at the even higher level of the AHL.
Throughout his years at university, ECHL and at AHL level, Craig also nicknamed "Killer" posted a save per centage in excess of 90. In 2008-9 at Phoenix in the ECHL his numbers stood at 91.8 and at Norfolk Admirals in the AHL in the same season he was rated at 92 per cent.
