19 year old goaltender Kurtis Mucha has signed to play for the Idaho Steelheads of the ECHL as they get ready to do battle in the playoffs.
The story can be found here:
Mucha, who is still draft eligible for the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, took part in the rookie camp of the NHL’s Phoenix Coyotes in September of 2008.
He holds the Winter Hawks team records for games played, minutes played, shots faced and saves made in his tenure as a Hawk.
I guess it is only fitting that Mucha, an avid fishermen, would play for a team named the Steelheads…here is hoping that this will be only his first cast into a pro hockey career.
Best of luck to Muchs…
