Superb Slovak re-signs

User Rating:  / 0

Basingstoke Bison logo The Paul Baldwin Agencies Basingstoke Bison are delighted to announce the re-signing of import defenceman Miroslav Vantroba.

The superb Slovak led the team's EPL scoring on defence for the second year running, as once again he racked up 40 points.

This made him the top points scoring import defenceman in the EPL and also one of the top goal scoring blue liners - thanks to his rocket shot Vantroba hit the net nine times last season.

The 35-year-old is also a key member of the Bison powerplay unit, where his excellent vision of the game means he is able to carve out chances for his team mates.

Last season, he certainly seemed more at home with the British style of play, having joined the Bison the year before, when he played a big part in helping the Herd win the EPL Cup and play-off double.

Up until then he played all his career in his homeland expect for one season in the Czech Republic.

Bison Director of Hockey Doug Sheppard said: "Miro is another key signing for us and a smart player who always wants to win every game.

"I think he is first true quarterback of the powerplay I have ever had and you know he is going to put the pucks on net from the blue line or play the right pass. He is one of the top players in this league in my view."
