The DALROD Peterborough Phantoms are delighted to announce Latvian goal tender Janis Auzins is returning for another season.

Returning for his third season, Auzins has provided some fantastic entertainment, playing 51 games and holding an impressive 92.1% save average making him the top Netminder of EPL 2015/16 Season.

Head coach Slava commented on Janis return “Janis has been a big part of our set up for the last two seasons on and off the ice!

A Goalie is the most important position in the roster and I am delighted to have best goalie in the league returning for another season. Janis has great stats and gives us a chance to win every game. We all know what he can do, to win us big games.

Slava continues “Janis doesn’t just deliver on the ice, but off ice helps and works with goalies through our junior system, and the ENL goalies Adam and Dan. He will be even more involved next season, doing goalie camps to help develop British goalies.

Now we have Janis back, we will build team around him and core guys from last season!”

From his home in Latvia, Janis spoke to us saying “I am really happy to be signing again at Peterborough. The team and staff are very welcoming and i am glad to have the opportunity to play with these guys again.”

Auzins continues “The fans are amazing, and it’s always a pleasure to play in front of them”
