9th year left wing Garrett Klotz(19) has spent his last four seasons in the ECHL or one year in the similar level Central Hockey League with Allen Americans, where he won the league’s final Ray Miron’s Cup before dissolving.

Originally a Philadelphia Flyers‘ 3rd round pick in the 2007 draft (#66 overall), the first three seasons of his pro career were on an entry level deal before signing his first minor league contract in 2011/2012 with AHL affiliate Adirondack Phantoms.

The giant-sized forward inked a one-year deal with Elmira Jackals last season, appearing in only half the games, but still managed to get into a team high 13 fights.

The 27-year old, who will turn 28 a month into 2016/2017 has decided to move his game overseas joining champs Coventry Blaze of the EIHL, which should be a boom for the upstart player.

Garrett Klotz(12) Adirondack Phantoms


Big, tough guy (6’5″ 235lb) Garrett Klotz(12) recently re-signed an AHL contract with Adirondack Phantoms after being dismissed to the Central Hockey League Bloomington Prairie Thunder last season.

Something must’ve registered in his head in a good way though, because for the first time in three pro seasons he found a bit of a goal scoring touch and ended up with 24 points (9 goals, 15 assists) in 49 games.

He’s never had much more than 5 points in any year.

We’ll see if he continues to contribute points along with the penalty minutes he racks up each season.
