According to the [i]Johnstown Tribune-Democrat[/i]
, Johnstown Chiefs fan favorite Dmitri Tarabin has signed with the Bloomington (Ill.) Prairie Thunder of the UHL. Tarabin had career highs in goals (21) and points (50) in 62 games last year with the Chiefs.
The Chiefs also announced the re-signing of defenseman Ben Wallace on Wednesday.
The London, Ontario, native played in 58 regular-season games last season and had 10 assists.
â€œBen is a very big addition to our team,â€ Chiefs coach Frank Anzalone said. â€œHe plays a very solid, stay-at-home game. Last year he learned the league. This year heâ€™ll hopefully be one of the best defensive defensemen in our division.â€
