BOSSIER CITY, LA - The Bossier-Shreveport Mudbugs of the Central Hockey League today announced the re-signing of goaltender Ken Carroll for the 2006-2007 season, which will be his sixth with the franchise. The reigning "Most Outstanding Goaltender" in the CHL is the Mudbugs` all-time leader in games played by a goaltender (191) and wins (121). In addition to his second career Goaltender of the Year honor last season, Carroll was also selected to his third straight CHL All-Star Game, named to the 2006 All-CHL Team, and voted the CHL`s "Best Goaltender" in the annual Best of the Best Poll. The Oil City, Ontario native posted a 20-7-4 record with a 2.31 goals against average and a .921 save percentage. Carroll, 29, will enter his sixth year in Bossier-Shreveport and seventh as a professional. He has recorded at least 20 wins in all five of his seasons with the Mudbugs. "Kenny overcame some obstacles last season and again proved that he`s the best goaltender in the league," said Head Coach Scott Muscutt. "He showed us why he`s such a great competitor and getting him re-signed is always going to be a priority. It`s great to have him back and he`s once again going to be the foundation for our team." Carroll joined the Mudbugs in the 2000-01 campaign and recorded a career-high 27 wins while guiding the franchise to its third straight President`s Cup championship. He was named the 2001 WPHL Goaltender and Rookie of the Year and was selected to play in the first of his five career All-Star Games. In all-time CHL/WPHL history, Carroll is sixth in wins (121) and is tied for second in shutouts (19). "It`s an honor to be back in Bossier-Shreveport and I`m really looking forward to this season," said Carroll. "The organization and community have always treated me so well and I know we`ll have a chance to compete for a championship again, so I`m excited to be back." Carroll joins veteran forward Dan Wildfong and defenseman Konrad Brand as the first three members of the 2006-2007 Mudbugs squad. The Mudbugs are currently preparing for their 10th anniversary season, which will begin in October and will feature the 2007 Central Hockey League All-Star Game at the CenturyTel Center on January 17, 2007.
