Stewart snaps up Star Corcoran
The Genting Casino Coventry Blaze are excited to announce the signing of 24-year-old American forward Charles Corcoran.
The 5’10” centreman spent last season (his first professional) with Elite League rivals Dundee Stars registering an impressive 16 goals, 36 assists for 52 points in 60 regular season games, also adding 2 helpers in 8 Challenge Cup games.
For the current campaign, Corcoran had signed with Lyon in France but due to their participation in the Ligue Magnus looking very uncertain, he has chosen the opportunity to return to the UK with Coventry.
Prior to his first pro season with the Stars, the New Canaan, CT native iced 110 times in the NCAA with Brown University posting 23 goals, 31 assists for 54 points.
Before Brown, he totalled 111 points with 38 goals, 73 assists at Berkshire School (USHS-Prep) and in his senior year was named most valuable player.
Head Coach Danny Stewart said, “We have been very patient in finding our last centre. It was important we added some speed and playmaking ability to our line-up. When Charles became available, we jumped right on it. He skates very well and plays hard on both sides of the puck. In the 2nd half of last season he elevated his game and was one of the more productive forwards in the league. He is another young player with plenty of upside and we are looking for him to have a big season with us.”
