Steffon Walby Is Back In The Pack

Mississippi Sea Wolves top gun Steffon Walby has re-signed for the 2002-2003 ECHL season. The 29-year-old Walby set a Sea Wolves franchise record last season bagging 42 goals and 93 points. The veteran right wing and assistant coach finished the season second in league scoring and third in ECHL points.

The 6-foot, 200-pound native of Madison, Wisconsin was the Sea Wolves team captain last year and captured the InGlasCo ECHL "Player of the Week" from January 28 to February 3, 2002. He was named to the All-ECHL first team and the Sea Wolves "Most Valuable Player."

Steffon said, "It's a great situation working with head coach Bob Woods. Now that we have a year under our belt, we're looking forward to another successful season. There's going to be a lot of pressure to repeat last year's numbers. Certainly, the effort will be there and that's all we can ask of the players. Off the ice this summer, I've been renewing and signing up new season ticket holders."

Head coach Bob Woods said, "Steffon is a key ingredient to the Sea Wolves. He was our Most Valuable Player last year and was in the running for East Coast Hockey League MVP. Steffon brings a lot to our team on and off the ice. ECHL rules won't allow any player to be signed for more then one season. If they did, Walby is a player that I would've liked to lock into a multi-year deal."
