Canadian defender Josh McFadden joins the “wolves”.

To complete the defense of our team, the club’s management reached an agreement with the Canadian defender Josh McFadden (29 years old).

Josh (185 cm. And 91 kg) is a very energetic defender, with exceptional physical qualities and a strong shot from the “blue line”.

Due to these qualities, he was co-opted in 2012 by the Florida Panthers (NHL) team with which he signed an “entry level” type contract for 3 years, after impressing in the “training camp”.

He didn’t make his NHL debut, but he played for the Florida Panthers in the AHL and ECHL (San Antonio Rampage and Cincinnati Cyclones) at the time.

After completing his contract with the Florida Panthers, he had a one-year break and then joined the team at Guleph University (Canada).

After completing his studies in Canada, he returned to professional hockey, joining in 2018 the Sheffield Steelers team (in the British professional league-EIHL).

In the 2018/2019 season he played for the Sheffield Steelers in a number of 51 games, scoring 27 points (6 goals and 21 assists).

Last season he played for the German team EV Landshut (DEL 2).

From the 2020/2021 season he will appear in the “wolves” team where he will bring extra strength and attitude.

Welcome, Carlo Finucci!

After our team has strengthened its attack with Radim Valchar and Tomas Klempa, a very valuable new striker will join the “wolves”.

It is about the Canadian (holder and Italian citizenship) Carlo Finucci (33 years old), who can evolve as both “left” and “right”.

The 175 cm player and 86 kg comes from the British Professional League (EIHL) where he played in the last 4 seasons for the Scottish team Fife Flyers.
In the British professional league he played – in the 4 seasons – in a number of 221 games and scored 197 points.

He also had 28 appearances in the EIHL Cup, scoring 15 points.

Carlo joined European hockey in 2014, signing with the Danish first league team Rungsted.
That season he was the team’s third scorer, scoring 35 points in 35 games.

In European hockey he also played in the British EPIHL league (2015-2016 season) for the Swindon Wildcats team.

Until 2014, Carlo played in North America, in the Canadian youth leagues Midget, PIJHL and BCHL, in the American university league NCAA (at the “Alaska-Fairbanks” university team) but also in the professional league ECHL.

In the North American professional league, ECHL played for 3 seasons, for the Las Vegas Wranglers and Evansville Icemen teams.

Carlo Finucci is a very professional player – according to the received references – a technical and fast striker, with a very good mentality and an innate scorer.

Given the experience and value of this player, we expect many goals scored for “wolves” in this season.

Rareș Vasile will continue with the “wolves”.

The junior of our club, Rareș Vasile (17 years old), will continue with our team next season.

Rareș – who will turn 18 on October 9 – plays as a striker and is one of the very talented players of his generation.

Last season he played for our team in 8 matches in the national senior championship, managing to score a goal and provide a decisive pass.

We are glad that a talented junior continues to “grow” with “wolves”.

Cody Carlson, another season with the “wolves”.

The “iron defender” of our team, the Canadian Cody Carlson (29 years old), reached an agreement with the club’s management and signed the contract extension for another season.

Cody arrived in Brașov before the 2018/2019 season – in the first season becoming national champion with our team, scoring an exceptional goal in the final with CSM Galați – and will wear the “yellow-blue” shirt for the third consecutive season (with a short break last season, when he played for a few months for the Hungarian team UTE).

Being a very hardworking defender with a positive attitude, Cody Carlson became a very appreciated player in Brasov.

In addition to being a very safe and precise defender, Cody Carlson is also a player who helps our team’s offense, scoring many goals and providing many decisive passes.

For the “wolves”, Cody has evolved in the last two seasons in a number of 80 games in the Erste League and scored 52 points (8 goals and 44 assists).

Also, in the Romanian national championship, he played in a number of 38 games (scoring 43 points – 16 goals and 27 assists).

National champion of Romania with the “wolves”, Cody will fight for the same goals next season.

The management of our club continues to negotiate with very valuable players to complete the group of “wolves” for the 2020-2021 season.
