Green Bay Sends Wilcox to Storm

General Manager and Head Coach Drew Schoneck announced Monday that the Tri-City Storm acquired Tampa Bay Lightning prospect goalie Adam Wilcox from the Green Bay Gamblers for a first round draft pick in the 2012 USHL Entry Draft.

“We felt that, while Pheonix (Copley) has played well for us so far this season, we could add a champion-like goalie in Wilcox to help this team take it to the next level,” Schoneck said in a Storm press release. “Adam was a major part of the success in Green Bay over the past year, and split time with a quality goalie in (Ryan) McKay, which allowed him to battle for his time.”

“We expect Adam to be a big addition to the Storm. He adds a little more winning experience to this team, and hope that he and Pheonix will lead this team to more wins overall.”
