The Peterborough DALROD Phantoms are delighted to announce the team’s second import position has now been filled. We are pleased to welcome back the NIHL Souths top goal scorer, Ales Padelek.

After the dust had settled from a busy strenuous season and the aches and pains had subsided, Slava met with Ales to discuss and evaluate his future. The life of a sportsperson is very different from any other profession, you start at a young age and finish early but once a decision is made to stop, it’s very hard to come back.

After daily communication, little by little it became more apparent Ales was not ready to give up the game he loves and he made the decision to continue his career with the Phantoms.

Last season Ales, picked up the honours of 2018/2019 Forward of the Year and Player of the Year, this was no surprise after the fantastic season the experienced Alternative Captain had. Ales topped the NIHL South’s leader board in becoming the top goal scorer and was one of the Phantoms most consistent players throughout the campaign.

Head Coach Slava Koulikov commented “I am really pleased to see Padi is committing to us again for another season on the ice. In my view Glenny, Jimmy and Padi were consistently the best line in the league and I’m thrilled to see that line will be back together again next season.”

With a treble-winning team announced and now the NIHL South’s top goal scorer confirmed, what better reason do you have to purchase your season ticket for the 2019/20 season.
