The Wichita Falls Wildcats are ready to drop the puck on their 10th anniversary season, and welcome a talented crop of rookies who will be looking to claim a place in the squad. Included in that group of new players are forwards Max Reisinger and Stan Sojka.
Reisinger joins the Wildcats after playing for the Cleveland Barons of the Tier I Elite League. In 44 games, he compiled 49 points on 26 goals and 23 assists, ranking in the top-10 in the nation for both goals scored and total points.
Originally from Walding, Austria, Reisinger is a member of the Austrian U18 international team. He lists Wayne Gretzky as the person he would most like to meet, and counts Jaromir Jagr and Alexander Ovechkin among his favorite players.
Sojka comes to Wichita Falls following a year with the Steele County Blades of the Minnesota Junior Hockey League. He averaged more than a point-per-game for the Blades, potting 25 goals and tallying 35 assists for 60 points in 54 games.
The Chicago-native and Blackhawks fan was an assistant captain for the Blades last season, and was also named the team’s most valuable player on offense.
