DEFENSEMAN GESTRO TENDERS WITH ‘RAYS; SET FOR NEXT SEASON

CORPUS CHRISTI, TX –  The Corpus Christi IceRays are still busy even though the season has concluded and are excited to announce the signing of defenseman Logan Gestro for the upcoming 2014-2015 regular season.

“It feels awesome! I'm really excited to have had the chance to tender with the IceRays,” said Gestro.  “I'm looking forward to the opportunity to develop my skills as a junior hockey player and become a part of the IceRays organization. They have an amazing fan base and I can't wait for the season to begin.”

In the 2012-2013 season, the 6’3’’ 191lb defender played 26 games with Honeybaked U16 before landing a role with Victory Honda U18 this past year where in 34 games played, Gestro recorded 12 points and 50 penalty minutes.

“Logan is a big mobile defenseman that should be able to eat a lot of minutes next year,” said head coach John Becanic.  “Coming from Victory Honda we know we are getting a player that knows how to win and compete.”

For Gestro, the decision was a simple one.  “Tendering with IceRays was a really easy decision for me. Talking with Coach Becanic made me realize this was going to be a good fit.  I really liked what he had to say and the time he took to talk to me. My current coach also had many good things to say about Corpus Christi and that coach Becanic would be a great coach to play for.”

As for what fans can expect to see from Gestro?  “The fans can expect to see me a as a big strong physical defensive defenseman that can make the first pass and will join the rush if given the opportunity.  I have been very fortunate to have played with very successful teams over the years and I hope to bring that success to the IceRays.
