Blackburn HAWKS have continued their rebuild for the 2013-14 season with the re-signing of key defenceman Craig Rogers.

Blackburn Hawks coach Jared Owen said: “I’m really happy to have Cragger back with the Hawks for the upcoming season; he is an underrated player in this league as last season was our top defensive defenceman.

“Craig keeps everything simple, moves the puck well, can carry the puck when needed and is strong in the crease and corners using his size to his advantage. He skates very well for his size and is mobile enough not to get beaten one on one very often.

“He is a key part of our defensive unit and forged an excellent on ice chemistry with Rick Ravey last season, helping Rick’s transition to defence. I’ll be counting on Cragger to maintain his consistent high level of performances as we compete in what will be an excellent league this year.”
