The Sydney Bears have secured forward, Charlie Adams for Season 2018.
The Minnesota native has spent the last two seasons playing in Germany for the ESC Wedemark Scorpions and Lindau where he had 75 points in 43 games and 2 points in four games respectively. Most recently, Adams we signed to the Pensacola Ice Flyers in the SPHL where he closed out the season with 43 points in 40 games.
Adams is a two-way centre with scoring ability that impressed Sydney Bears head coach, Ron Kuprowsky:
“We need some scoring power up from and Charlie is definitely going to be a force out on the ice. We are excited to have someone like him play for us this year. He’s not only a good scorer but also likes to set up plays. Bears fans should be prepared to watch him light it up!”
Adams is looking forward to making the move to Sydney with his fiancé. It will be their first time visiting Australia:
“We're looking forward to getting to know the city, the organization, and the fans. We've heard nothing but good things about the team and the city. We're also excited to check out more than just the touristy stuff. We want to pursue the local hidden gems [such as] restaurants, outdoor attractions and get to as many new cities as we can during our stay.”
