Oxford City Stars are delighted to announce that British trained Adrian Dusznik has signed for the remainder of the season. Coach Simon Anderson has moved quickly to secure the 21yr old forwards signature after his departure from Basingstoke Bison in the National League. Dusznik was on the radar for the stars in the summer, and Coach Simon Anderson is pleased that he finally managed to bring him to Oxford. Last season Adrian was part of the very successful Guildford Phoenix, where he put up 24 points in 14 games. Which included 9 goals.
Coach Simon Anderson had this to say: "I am delighted to add Adrian to our roster.He has been skating with us for a couple of weeks and has really fitted in well with our group. He has played with some of our guys previously in the OHA programme and also Josh Abbott last season in Guildford and I think that helped him feel right at home the moment he walked into the rink.
Adrian brings a great skill set and has tremendous playmaking ability.I have no doubt he will help us elevate our offence which has been lacking in recent weeks.
With the addition of Bailey Hind-Pitcher in the week on a 2way deal from Bristol, we now feel that along with Adrian we have an additional offensive threat and this will hopefully enable us to start getting some wins on the board and start to climb the table.
It's no secret that we have been playing short for the last few weeks and myself and Shane Moore now feel that with these two additions, we will be able to cope more with injuries and player commitment issues that have bugged us through this season. We are still on the hunt for another D-man, but as we have stated a few times, they have to be the right fit. Teams and players are making changes at this time of year and we will move to strengthen when the opportunity arises "
On his signing, Adrian added "I cant wait to get started in Oxford. The team have really made me feel welcome and it feels really natural to be playing with a lot of the guys who I've played with previously. I really feel this team should be higher up the table right now and I'm excited to be apart of the push as we look to climb the table and cause some upset. Its an exciting time for hockey in Oxford and I feel we can be a dangerous team for the later part of the season"
The smooth skating 6'2 forward will slot right into the lineup this weekend as the Stars take on the MK Thunder, assuming paperwork is returned from the EIHA in time for his transfer.
