Tarantulas sign Wolfe

September 7, 2004 - Central Hockey League (CHL) - Topeka Tarantulas News Release

[TOPEKA, K.S.] - The Topeka Tarantulas of the Central Hockey League (CHL) announced today that the club has signed defenseman Trevor Wolfe.

Wolfe, a 6'2" 200 pound defenseman, from Toledo, Ohio played the last two seasons with the University of Findlay (NCAA Division I). In those two seasons (2002/03-2003/04), Wolfe had four points and 48 penalty minutes in 44 games played. Wolfe played seven games last season for the Texas Wildcatters of the ECHL, where he had 10 penalty minutes.

"Trevor is a young, up and coming defenseman. He is a good fit for our team, and will add physical play to the back end." Head Coach Joe Coombs added, "It's unfortunate that he came from a disbanded college program [University of Findlay], which forced him to turn pro a year earlier than normal. He has a taste of professional hockey playing in the ECHL and has the potential to be a top four defenseman for us this season."

Prior to the University of Findlay, Wolfe played the 2000/01 season with the Waterloo Blackhawks of the United States Hockey League (USHL), where he tallied 23 points and had 140 penalty minutes in 52 games played.

Season tickets, group tickts, and mini-plans for the 2004-2005 season are now available. Contact the Tarantulas office at (785) 235-9466 for more information.
