The Waldeck Peterborough Phantoms regretfully announce that #71 Corey McEwen will be leaving the club ahead of the 23/24 season.
McEwen first joined the Phantoms organisation in 2018 and quickly had a big impact on the team, being awarded the player of the season award in his second year with the team. Corey played 163 games in his time as a Phantom, putting up 168 points since his start in 2018.
McEwen will be leaving having won 4 trophies in his 4 seasons with the team! He was a part of the team to win the treble in the 18/19 season, and became a National Cup Champion in the 22/23 season!
Corey McEwen had the following to say on his departure: “Choosing to leave the Phantoms hasn’t been an easy decision for me! Playing for the team where my Dad finished his career was always a dream of mine, and I have had the best 4 years here in Peterborough!"
He continued "I have made so many memories and friendships in my time here, and I’d like to thank all of the teammates I’ve had in Peterborough over the years, for making it such a great experience! I’d like to thank the Directors for giving me the opportunities over the past four seasons, and also the fans. I can’t thank you enough for the support you have shown me in my time here.”
Head Coach Slava Koulikov commented: “We would like to thank Corey for the seasons he has worn the Phantoms jersey and wish him all the best for the future.”
We are sad to see Corey leave the organisation, but we would like to thank him for all of his hard work over the past 4 seasons, and wish him the best for whatever may come next!
Thank you Corey, #71
