The 2012 Western Conference champion Las Vegas Wranglers Thursday announced they have come to terms with goaltender Mitch O'Keefe for the 2012-13 season.
The 6'2", 210-pound netminder got the team off to a 5-0 start in the 2012 playoffs with a three-game sweep of the Utah Grizzlies. O'Keefe, 28, posted a regular season record of 10-9-2, a 2.74 goals-against average and a 0.903 save percentage.
"Mitch was a huge reason why we advanced in the Kelly Cup playoffs," said Wranglers Head Coach and General Manager Ryan Mougenel. "He's an amazing teammate and I'm very excited to see Mitch stay healthy and continue the success he had last year."
The Almont, Ontario native was named Rookie of the Year playing for the formidable Ferris State Bulldogs in 2005-06. Before coming to the Wranglers, O'Keefe stood between the pipes for the ECHL's Elmira Jackals and Grizzlies. He spent a season overseas with HK Jesenice of the Australian Hockey League.
2012-13 ticket plans are available now by calling (702)-471-PUCK. For more information, visit www.lasvegaswranglers.com.
