Junior Enforcers Director Of Scouting, Nick Pagliacci, announced today that Elmira has signed 6’3 175 Ib forward Natanel Zilber of Maccabi, Israel. The 18-year-old has spent the last four seasons playing for various Israel U20 teams. He most recently split time during the 2021-22 season playing for the Maccabi North Stars Metulla and the Israel U20 national team where he put up an impressive stat line. Natanel’s ability to handle the puck up and down the ice with ease and create plays should make him a key to the Junior Enforcers offense this year.
“I’m very excited to join the Junior Enforcers family” exclaimed Zilber. “I will give only my best to make the team successful this coming season”.
“Natanel comes to us from Europe to play his first year of juniors” mentioned Premier head coach Glen Patterson. “He is a big body who possesses great tools to succeed at the USPHL level. We look forward to working with him this season.”
The Junior Enforcers organization wrapped up summer main camp on Sunday, June 5th where 9 total players across the Elite and Premier teams were offered contracts for the upcoming season. 2022/23 player announcements and signing videos will continue throughout the summer, and the season schedule will be ready in a few weeks.
