The unprotected Dylan Clarke's twitter acct. shows him as a "Former Pro Hockey Player".

Thanks. I waited to ask him about it because his FB said, "former" for every team he has played for except Evansville.

Idaho Steelheads Re-Sign Tomas Sholl


Boise, ID – Idaho Steelheads announced on Thursday that the Steelheads have agreed to terms with goaltender Tomas Sholl on an ECHL contract for the 2018-19 season.

Sholl, 23, joined the Steelheads at the end of February to complete his first professional season, acquired from the Adirondack Thunder for cash considerations.. The Hermosa Beach, California native appeared in 11 regular-season games with Idaho, going 9-0-1 in a Steelheads uniform with a 1.24 goals-against average and a .953 save percentage. Sholl’s tenure with the Steelheads included a string of nine consecutive starts to help lead the team into the playoffs. His four shutouts were tied for second-most in the ECHL.

Sholl was among the ECHL’s best goaltenders upon joining the Steelheads, earning ECHL Goaltender of the Week honors in consecutive weeks between March 5th and March 18th and then netting the ECHL Goaltender of the Month award for March.

The 6-foot rookie became the first Steelheads goaltender ever to win the Goaltender of the Week award in consecutive weeks, and just the third Steelhead to ever win twice in one season.

The Steelheads were Sholl’s fourth team of 2017-18. Sholl began the season in the Southern Professional Hockey League, appearing in 20 games for the Macon Mayhem and Evansville Thunderbolts and posting a record of 14-3-3 to earn a call-up to the ECHL with the Adirondack Thunder. With the Thunder, Sholl went 5-0-1 with a 2.05 goals-against average and a .939 save percentage.

Through 19 regular-season ECHL appearances, Sholl has not suffered a regulation loss.

Sholl played three seasons of NCAA Division I hockey at Bowling Green State University, appearing in 19 games from 2013 to 2017 with a 7-10-0 record.

That's a good sign atleast somebody maybe still in charge of recruiting players unless this all happened before the coach moved on.
