Colton Waltzes into Fife: Flyers add to squad with physical D-man Colton Waltz.
The UNISON Fife Health Branch Fife Flyers are delighted to welcome 26-year-old Colton Waltz to Kirkcaldy for the 2021/22 Elite Ice Hockey League season.
The 6”1’ Alberta, Canada native joins the Flyers after being released from ECHL side the Cincinnati Cyclones.
Waltz started out his pro-career in the Canadian WHL where he iced for two clubs the Brandon Wheat Kings and the Saskatoon Blades, making 272 appearances, scoring 15 goals and 74 assists.
He has also made a single appearance in the AHL with the Bakersfield Condors.
After a spell playing college hockey with the Northern Alberta Institute of Tech, Waltz made the move across the Atlantic for a spell in France with second tier side Strasbourg – racking up 15 points in 11 appearances.
It is expected that Colton Waltz will be available for selection this weekend when the Flyers welcome the Guildford Flames to Kirkcaldy this weekend.
Commenting, Fife Flyers head coach Todd Dutiaume said:
“Colton will be a big, strong and steady D-man who will bolster our defence. The guys in there have been doing a tremendous job but are going to need a little more assistance.
“He is going to be tough to play against down low and he will be quick to get the puck into the hands of the forwards, which is something we have been looking for and Colton comes in highly recommended.
“We are delighted to add him to our squad, he will fit in nicely. We have heard nothing but fantastic things about his character and he will complement this dressing room, where we already have a lot of cohesion, very nicely.”
