The Peterborough DALROD Phantoms announce today the signing of Latvian defenceman Edgars Apelis.

The 24 year old has already played in Latvia, Belarus, Ukraine, Czech Republic, France and Germany, accruing 46 goals for 133 points and 270 PIM.

Peterborough DALROD Phantoms Head Coach Slava Koulikov on the signing of Apelis said “I would like to welcome Edgars to the Phantoms.

“He is a very good 2 way defenceman who reads the game well. He’s solid in the defence zone with a solid first pass. He has a good shot and will contribute offensively as well”

He continued: “I believe with his addition, to what we already have, we will have a very balanced defence which will make us stronger as a team”.
