Pirates Turn to a Netminder Unit

In the latest recruitment drive, netminders, Steve Hudson and Matthew Smital have been recruited as cover for first choice keeper, Ash Smith. Amid the disappointment of losing their first backup netminder signing, Pirates moved to sign two players as cover to form a unit. Smital is on a two-way contract with Slough Jets but Hudson, well known in local ice hockey circles, is no stranger to the Pirate’s team having supported them last season during Ash Smith’s injury period
