Pensacola, Fla. (June 11, 2019) – The Pensacola Ice Flyers announced today the team’s 2019 Main Camp invitee from the 2019 Free Agent Camp.
This year, the free agent camp took place in Chicago, Ill. at the Triphahn Ice Arena at Hoffman Estates Park District. Over the course of three days, 27 players competed in four practice scrimmages for the same goal: to be invited to the main camp in October at the Pensacola Bay Center.
This year, the Ice Flyers have invited Christian Pavlas, a 23-year-old goalie originally hailing from Bratislava, Slovakia. For the 2018-19 season, Pavlas played for the Federal Hockey League (FHL) Carolina Thunderbirds, assisting in the Thunderbirds 2018-19 championship.
When asked about inviting Pavlas to the main camp, Head Coach Rod Aldoff said, “Christian had a lights out camp this past weekend. He showed he deserves an opportunity at our level and he will compete strongly to make our team. He’s a tremendous person with a great work ethic and we look forward to seeing him in Pensacola in October.”
Christian Pavlas expressed his excitement and gratitude for his upcoming opportunity, “The Pensacola Ice Flyers Free Agent Camp was challenging and it gave me great insight into the organization. I enjoyed the experience and am looking forward to succeeding at the main camp. I am thankful for this opportunity.”
The Main Camp will take place in October of this year, with an exact date to be decided.
