Enga Returns to the Fold
Colorado Springs, Colo. - Center R.J. Enga has agreed to terms with the Colorado Gold Kings for the 2002-03 season.
The 30-year-old Enga, one of the last of the original Gold Kings, has appeared in all 310 regular season and playoff games since the franchise moved to Colorado Springs in 1998. He narrowly missed becoming the first Colorado player to register 50 goals in back-to-back seasons last year, finishing with 48 to earn second team all-WCHL honors to go along with a team- and career-best +24 rating. Enga's career-high 50 goals and 105 points in 2000-01 landed him a first team all-WCHL selection as well as a trip to the 2001 WCHL-CHL All-Star Game. Entering his fifth year with the Gold Kings, he is the club's all-time leader in games, points (387), goals (165), power play goals (56), and shorthanded goals (10).
"R.J. is certainly one of our top guns and a premier goal scorer in this league," said Gold Kings coach Al Pedersen. "In addition, he's extremely dedicated and that work ethic has resulted in improved play at both ends of the ice."
2002-03 season tickets are now on sale, starting at only $160 for a 10-game package in the lower bowl at the Colorado Springs World Arena. For more information, please call (719) 268-7172.
