Wave adds veteran Goran Vasic
MILWAUKEE, WI (Feb. 13, 2007) - Veteran midfielder Goran Vasic has been added to the Milwaukee Wave's roster, adding playoff experience and scoring punch for the final weeks of the season.
Vasic, 34, has played for Cleveland and Philadelphia in an eight-year career. He has 178 goals and 203 assists in regular-season play, with another 18 and 11, respectively, in 27 playoff games.
Vasic's best season was his rookie year of 1998-99, when he recorded 32 2-point goals, three 3-point goals and five 1-point goals, with 26 assists, for 104 points with Cleveland.
"He's got a lot of experience in the league, which will help us in the midfield," said Keith Tozer, Wave head coach and director of soccer operations. "He's been in two finals and won championships, so that's going to help. Plus his production on the offensive end, both on restarts and power plays, as well as in the run of play, is going to make our offensive even better."
To make room for Vasic, the Wave released Salim Bullen. The rookie midfielder from Queens, N.Y., had appeared in nine games this season, with one block and no points.
