Sea Wolves Make Trade Sending Essex To Roanoke

The Mississippi Sea Wolves traded right wing Brad Essex to Roanoke for Express center John Sadowski. Essex, a veteran under ECHL regulations, ended the 2000-2001 season with 8 goals and 12 assists with 165 penalty minutes. In three seasons in a Sea Wolves uniform Essex netted 40 goals and 43 assists.

Besides Essex, the Sea Wolves sent Tyler Deis to Roanoke. Deis was involved as a future consideration for Steve Duke and the Charlotte Checkers. Coach Bob Woods picks up a young fiesty center in John Sadowski. As a rookie, the 5'10" 180 pound Sadowski delivered 14 goals, 25 assists and 96 penalty minutes in 62 games with the Express last season. In addition, Woods reserves a future consideration from Roanoke this season.

Woods said, "Sadowski is a player everyone notices on the ice. He's a gritty two-way player who put up some real impressive numbers as a rookie in Roanoke. It's tough to see Brad go, but I know the situation with the Express will be better for his career. They need a tough-guy who can score and really don't have room now with Brad being a veteran. It's the best move for everyone."
