Wolves Sign Veteran Forward Caranci
Watertown, NY – Watertown Wolves Head Coach and Director of Hockey Operations Phil Esposito announced today that the team has signed veteran forward Matt Caranci for the 2016-17 season. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Caranci, 30, is entering his seventh season in the FHL and his first with the Watertown Wolves. Caranci has played his entire FHL career under coach Phil Esposito. In 198 career FHL games with Danbury, the Toronto, Ontario native recorded 65 goals, 92 assists for 157 points. Matt’s best season came in 2013-14 with the Danbury Whalers where he recorded 17 goals and 31 assists.
"We are extremely happy to have a healthy Matt (Caranci) with us this season," said Esposito. "In watching him play early last season, prior to a shortened season due to a shoulder injury, I saw him grow into not only an all-star caliber hockey player but a tremendous leader on and off the ice. This season he will lead the charge of the Wolves offensive unit and be a key component to our success. His ability to see the ice and create scoring chances is on level with the best in the FHL and I know he will build off last years early success."
The Watertown Wolves open up at home on Friday, October 28th when they take on the Danville Dashers at 7:30 PM.
