Tarantulas Sign Forward
Topeka, Kansas: June 23, 2004-The Topeka Tarantulas of the Central Hockey League have signed forward Kori Davison, head coach Joe Coombs announced today.
Davison, 6, 175 lbs from Vernon, British Columbia, skated with the Missouri River Otters of the United Hockey League last season. Due to an injury he was limited to eight games picking up 47 penalty minutes. Prior to last season, he played with San Angelo of the Central League during the 2001-02 and 2002-03 seasons, scoring 67 points (40 goals, 27 assists, 67 points) while serving 651 penalty minutes.
During the 02-03 campaign, Davison, 25, established career highs in goals (22), points (34) and penalty minutes (380). In 129 professional regular season games Davison has 67 points (40 goals, 27 points, 67 points) while serving 698 penalty minutes.
Ive set several goals for myself, said Davison. I would like to add team toughness, but drop to around 150 penalty minutes while adding about ten goals to my average. I want to be the fan favorite every year, but my main goal is to make the playoffs.
While playing for the Missouri River Otters, Davison was a teammate of Tarantulas player/assistant coach Troy Mann.
The Central Hockey League schedule is expected to be released in mid-July. The Tarantulas will play 30 home games and 30 away games.
