Cyclones Net Goaltenders
Mark Richards, Head Coach and General Manager of the Southern Professional Hockey League's Twin City Cyclones, is announcing the signings of goaltenders Shawn Conschafter and Nick Pannoni. "With these signings, we believe we have solidified our goaltending for the upcoming season," commented Coach Richards.
Conschafter, a native of Buffalo, New York, comes to the Cyclones from the Amarillo Gorrillas of the Central Hockey League (CHL) where he appeared in 38 games with a record of 19-16-1. "Sean is certainly a quality goalie. He is coming off a great season and we expect him to have continued success with us this year," stated Richards. The 5'-9", 165lb. netminder has also spent time in the East Coast Hockey League (ECHL) as well as the former United Hockey League (UHL). The 26 year-old Conschafter played college hockey for the University of Vermont.
Pannoni, the 24 year-old native of Coaldale, Alberta was selected by the Detroit Red Wings in the 2001 National Hockey League (NHL) Entry Draft. "Nick was highly touted coming out of Juniors. We believe he will be a good fit for our team," remarked Richards. The 6'-0", 160lb. goalie last played at the University of Waterloo for the 2005-06 season. In 1999, Pannoni played with the United States Junior National Team where he was 24-8 with a 0.896 save percentage.
