Son of NHL Hall of Famer Joins Cotton Kings

LUBBOCK, TX: October 2, 2006 - The Lubbock Cotton Kings of the Central Hockey League (CHL) are pleased to announce goaltender Josh Gartner, the son of NHL Hall of Famer Mike Gartner, has signed a contract with the Kings for the 2006/2007 season.

"I like what I hear about Josh and his ability to compete," said Cotton Kings Head Coach and Director of Hockey Operations Chris Dashney. "His statistics from the past couple of seasons are not indicative as to how well he performs stopping the puck."

Gartner comes to Lubbock after spending the past four seasons in college suiting up with Yale University. Last season, he appeared in seven games and posted 1-4-0 record with a 4.86 GAA and an 85.4% save percentage. The Richmond Hill, Ontario native was at Yale from 02/03 to 05/06, where he spent time as a teammate of Cotton Kings defenseman Stacey Bauman. Gartner had an immediate impact once arriving at Yale in 02/03, as he finished the season ranking tenth in the nation with a 91.7% save percentage. He was a two-time All-ECAC Academic Team member and a five-time ECAC Goaltender of the Week while with the Bulldogs. The 22 year-old's college career included a 23-31-0 record in 65 games with a 3.72 GAA and an 89.6% save percentage.

The 5'10" 175-pound goaltender spent a season of junior hockey prior to Yale in 01/02 primarily spent in the United States Hockey League (USHL) with the Green Bay Gamblers before joining the Hamilton Kilty B's of the Ontario Provincial Jr. A Hockey League (OPJHL) towards the close of the season and postseason. Josh's father, Mike, spent 19 seasons in the NHL and was inducted into the NHL Hall of Fame in 2001 with a career that included 708 goals and 7 assists for 1335 in 1432 games. Mike appeared with five different NHL teams and was a seven-time NHL All-Star (1993 MVP).

The addition of Gartner gives the Kings 21 players announced for the 06/07 season. He joins goaltender Michael Clements, Brett Koscielny and Kyle Stanton, defensemen Chris Barth, Stacey Bauman, Jason Beatty, Marc Bianchi, Noel Henck, Craig Minard, Troy Neumeier and forwards Bobby Brown, Jimmy Callahan, Pat Doherty, Philippe Lacasse, Andrew Luciuk, Paul McBrien, Jaydyn Murray, Corey Rutt, Simon Watson, Trevor Weisgerber on the 06/07 roster. Gartner qualifies as a developmental player (128 games or less played). Each CHL team must have at least five developmental players on their roster. Media members seeking an interview with either Gartner or Head Coach Chris Dashney, can contact Chris Due at 806-549-4228.

The Cotton Kings are currently preparing for their eighth season of professional hockey in the South Plains. The season opener is set for Saturday, October 21st, as Lubbock hosts the Odessa Jackalopes at the Lubbock Municipal Coliseum. Season ticket and corporate sponsorship information for the upcoming season is available by contacting the Cotton Kings office at (806) 747-7825. Additional 'Kings info can be found online via their official site at www.cottonkings.com.

SOUTHAVEN, MS --- Is it the first game in team history at Oklahoma City on November 4, 1992? Or how about one of the two President's Cup winning overtime goals in 2002 and 2003? Maybe Don Parsons' 1000th career point?

The RiverKings also announced early this summer that they will also be selecting an All-Time Team as a 15th anniversary event. Nominations are still being taken for the team. Fans can use the same contact information as above. Like the top moment entries, the top All Time Team nominations will be placed on final ballot for fan voting once the season starts.

Both the RiverKings' All Time Team and Top Moment in RiverKings History will be announced during the 2006-2007 season.

###########################

The RiverKings celebrate their 15th Anniversary in 2006-2007. The season and home opener is Friday, October 20 versus the Youngstown Steelhounds at 7:05.

Two more forwards added to Scorpions roster

[RIO RANCHO, N.M.]- The New Mexico Scorpions, proud member of the Central Hockey League (CHL), signed two more young players to their roster. Forwards Bobby Kukulka and Ryan McLeod will be on the ice Monday, Oct. 9 when the Scorpions hit the ice for training camp.

Kukulka will provide added experience up front. The McComb, Mich. native, spent the last two seasons in the United Hockey League (UHL) with Flint and Richmond. In 146 games, the 22-year-old has scored 52 points (26G, 26A) and registered 231 penalty minutes.

"Bobby is a guy with professional hockey experience," said Scorpions Head Coach Ray Edwards. "We know he can score and will add valuable experience to our relatively young group of forwards."

McLeod is the tenth rookie the Scorpions have inked to a contract. The center played for two seasons at the University of Alaska-Fairbanks. He showed scoring ability in college collecting 17 goals and 22 assists in his 49 collegiate games. The Fernie, B.C. native, spent 13 games with the Victoria Salmon Kings of the ECHL near the end of last season.

"By spending time in the ECHL last season he understand what it takes to play at the professional level," said Edwards. "Like the rest of our younger players, the key is how they get their mind and body in shape to face the challenge of playing at this level."

The Scorpions will christen the new state-of-the-art Santa Ana Star Center on Friday, October 27, when they face the Arizona Sundogs at 7:35 p.m. This season the Scorpions feature 22 weekend home games. The schedule can also be viewed and printed by visiting www.scorpionshockey.com/schedule.

Season tickets and corporate partnership information is now available for the New Mexico Scorpions inaugural season in the Santa Ana Star Center. Make sure to reserve your seats now to be a part of all the exciting action. Reserve your season tickets for as low as $320. Monthly plans are also available to fit any budget by calling the Scorpions office at (505) 881-PUCK [7825] or by visiting www.scorpionshockey.com.
