Bob Woods Will Return For His 4th Season With the Sea Wolves

Bob Woods returns. Back in the fold. The veteran defenseman and assistant coach has decided to return to do battle on the ice for the Mississippi Sea Wolves for the 2001-2002 season. Bob Woods said, "I love it here it. Its a great place to play and the body is still feels like it can get through another year. It's something I enjoy doing so, if you enjoy it, keep doing it."

Woods has played in 796 professional games.. 599 of those in the ECHL.. the league's all-time games leader. Bob led the Sea Wolves with 60 points this past season in 69 games and finished second among ECHL defense men in scoring. He's ranks second on the Sea Wolves all-time scoring list with 176 points just one behind all-time leader Kelly Hurd. Woods will break that mark this season.

Woods said, "I keep telling everybody I'm at that year-to-year phase. After every year I access the situation see how the body feels, see if the mind is still in it, and still have that competitive push. I think I do, I still want to win. If we follow the cycle, the Sea Wolves are due for a championship next year so I'd hate to miss that."

Sea Wolves owner and general manager John Gagnon commented, "We are extremely proud to have Bob Woods sign with us for another year. Bob Woods has been an important part of our organization, proving that the future always looks brighter when you know you have him on your side." Another reason Bob Woods decided to return, he wasn't happy that the Sea Wolves missed the playoffs last season and he doesn't what that to happen again.
