RSL Islanders Pickup Senior Proderick, Strengthen Centre Position

Shaun Johnson, General Manager of the RSL Islanders, is pleased to announce that former Kingston Ice Wolf, Alyssa Proderick (Senior, C) has accepted a roster position offer. Shaun has been looking to strengthen the Islanders centre position since training camp, preferably with an older player that could lend leadership and take the shifts against top lines. “With Alyssa’s signing, we’ve found the player I was looking for. She’s smart with the puck, a very good passer and provides the presence to calm down tough situations.”

Head Coach Pete Pedersen has been really impressed with her work ethic, consistency and ability to make her line-mates better. “These are qualities you expect from your top senior players and she has them. Her addition makes us really strong down the middle and gives us flexibility in our line-up that we didn’t have before. She’s someone who can eat up big minutes and give our younger players an example to follow.”
