The Watertown Wolves are proud to announce the first goaltender signing for the upcoming 2020-2021 season as they have agreed to terms with former Watertown Wolves and FPHL champion Nick Niedert.
Niedert a veteran player of the FPHL comes into the league for his 10th season and his 16th year playing professional hockey. Numbers do not lie when it comes to Nick Niedert. Over his career he has posted some very impressive numbers. Playing in over 227 games with 69 wins, 55 losses and 7 OTL allowing 546 goals against but still manages to have 4,775 saves in his career here in the FPHL. Niedert also has a Save percentage of .886 with a 3.86 GGA. Nick is coming into this season with high hopes and a fresh start.
“To be honest I had a very bad last couple of seasons fighting through injury and other obligations and I wasn’t mentally into the hockey mindset,” Niedert stated. “But now when given this opportunity to come back to Watertown where I have won a championship and have played for Clarke before, I’m even more excited to get back on the ice and go for a championship run.”
Wolves owner Andreas Johansson had nothing but good things to say about Niedert. “He is a veteran in this league and has been successful in all levels of professional hockey. He will bring experience, and Clarke and I are looking to him as a good mentor to not just the goaltenders but to all the guys in the locker room. He has been to the Finals several times and he knows what it takes to get there. We believe that he will play a crucial role in the success of organization both on and off the ice as he is a guy that everyone wants to talk to and he is the perfect addition in the direction we are going with this new team.”
Niedert now joins an already impressive roster of Deric Boudreau, Ryan Marker, Fred Hein, Lane King, Cole Sonstebo, Eric Masters, Jamie Lukas, Justin Coachman, Vladimir Port and Stefano Alonzi. More exciting announcements are still to come as the new season is quickly approaching as we are only a little over 3 months away.
