I signed last night with Bouch's old team the Basingstoke Bisons in the Elite league. I've always wanted to play in Europe and when this option became available I had to take it. I've been talking with Ryan Aldridge, coach, a lot lately and I liked what he had to say about the opportunity with his team. I am very excited for the opportunity, but now the summer just got shorter by more than a month. Talking with Bouch, he had good things to say about the Elite league, the town of Basingstoke, and the Bison fans. Basingstoke is close to London and it will be nice to take day trips there when the team has off days. It will be an easier transition compared to some of the other countries I received offers from. Being an English speaking country was a big part of my decision along with the local university offering a one year full time MBA program. I won't be out of my comfort level too far and I hope that I can give the Bisons a chance to win night in and night out like I did this past year for the Komets. I would like to thank the Komet organization, Al Sims, and the fans for the opportunity to play here, an unbelievable year and lots of memories.
