Goalie Adam Carlson returns to the Rapid City Rush
RAPID CITY, S.D. – Rapid City Rush fans received some promising and exciting news on Wednesday concerning the upcoming season.
The team has signed former Rush goalie Adam Carlson.
Carlson recently played for the Rush during the 2018-19 season.
He finished with a 21-17-3-3 record in 45 games with a 2.91 GAA and .916 save percentage.
Carlson eventually received a two-way American Hockey League contract with the Manitoba Moose and his rights were traded to the Jacksonville Icemen.
Last season, he compiled a record of 19-15-3-1 while playing for Jacksonville.
A native of Edina, Minnesota, Carlson enters his fifth season of professional hockey and his second season with the Rush.
“When he became available as a free agent this summer, I was working the phones hard with him and his agent to get him back to Rapid,” Rush head coach Daniel Tetrault said. “I knew he always loved it here. He loved the community and he wore the R real proudly. It’s exciting news. Now you pair him up with Gordan Defiel and it’s one of the best tandems in the league I believe. It just adds depth to the goaltending position and to the organization.
