Paul Bradley
Number: 27
Height: 5"9'
Weight: 142
Positon(s): RW
Experience: No experience
The only rookie on this year's R-Plecz squad, Paul is hoping to jump-start an already potent offense.  Being a Shaler alum, Bradley is no stranger to the walls of Bladerunners.  Bradley plans on using this home-ice familiarity to his benefit.  Paul said of the upcoming season "Man... I'm just tryna do dis.  I'm just tryna win some games"

Gary Delehanty
Number: 18
Height: 5'8"
Weight: 180 lbs
Position(s): G
Experience: 1 year
After years of searching for a qualified goaltender, Gary proved to be the answer to R-Plecz's problems.  Gary was not just remarkable in his rookie campaign, but earned the honors of most valuable player.  Despite his lack of experience, Gary led R-Plecz to their first winning season since Year 1 and to a playoff birth.  Unfortunately his efforts were not enough as the team fell in a triple OT thriller in round 1.  Along the way, Gary set several R-Plecz goaltending records including: Most career wins, most single season wins, longest winning streak, and pitched the first shutout in over four years.  Gary lends his experience to playing on 99 different hockey teams as well as coaching the Carrick High School Hockey team.  Gary holds the designation of being the first person to ever make it out of Carrick alive.

Gene Frederick
Number: 17
Height: 5'7"
Weight: 165 lbs
Positon(s): D
Experience: 5 Years
The rock of R-Plecz's defense, Frederick looks to lead his troops to another successful season.  Known for his defensive play, Frederick turned on the offense last year with seven goals and eleven assists.  As a founder of the organization, Frederick is currently third all time in career scoring.  His most recent success can be attributed to visor.  The addition of visor has enabled Gene to poon massive amounts of noobs while protecting his eyes, yet still allowing opponened to view his hair-laden face.

Dan Hallwirth
Number: 11
Height: 5'9"
Weight: 155
Position(s): C
Experience: 5 Years
Not enough can be said about last seasons Art Ross Trophy winner.  Last season Dan revealed the ability to take over games when needed.  A tale that will go down in R-Plecz lore, Dan once scored six goals in one game, a feat that Dan himself plans on matching...every game.  Dan is not shy about his confidence in the team either saying "Shut up I'm not listening and I will fight through the tiredness and sickness, when its all on the line and the 3rd period my body will not be weak, weakness breeds failures and I will not fail and as a team, R-Plecz will not fail"

Steve Keslar
Number: 21
Height: 5"8'
Weight: 195 lbs
Position(s): D
Experience: 5 Years
While you may know him as official travel agent of the R-Plecz Hockey Club, Keslar serves a much greater role for R-Plecz.  Never known for his offense, Keslar has built a highlight reel of hits in a very short amount of time.  With radar that seeks out weak opponents, keslar specializes in putting people horizontal.  However, last season, in addition to his checking ability, Keslar displayed a great playmaker ability.  Keslar set the single season record with an astounding 18 assists.  The 18 assists, coupled with one goal gave him a career best, 19 points. 

Luke Mohamed
Number: 72
Height: 6'0"
Weight: 186 lbs
Position(s): UTIL/Reserve Goaltender
Experience: 5 Years
Sources close to look say he's in the best shape of his career.  Luke is co-founder and a longtime captain of the franchise. Mohamed is noted for his aggressive style of play on the defensive side of the puck, refusing to give ground to his opponents. In addition, he has made appearances on several highlight reels with his scoring production from in front of the opponent's net, an area commonly referred to as his "office." His performance has drawn praise for a playing style reminiscent of Pittsburgh's own Ryan Malone.  When playing defense, Mohamed has drawn comparisons to Mark Eaton, another American, as both show great willingness to give up the body to block a shot.

Kyle Polliard
Number: 13
Height: 6'0"
Weight: 182 lbs
Position(s): LW/RW
Experience: 1 year
With his first full season under his belt, Polliard is excited for an opportunity to get back in the action.  Performing well his rookie season, Polliard chipped in 3 goals; none bigger than the playoff goal the Lumberjack hacked home.  Kyle credits his support to Papa, Mama, and JulieJack; each of whom regularly attend games.

Kyle Johnson
Number: 20
Height: 6'2"
Weight: 199 lbs
Position(s): RW
Experience: 1 year
Coming off his rookie campaign, Kyle leaves little room to improve.  Despite playing as a forward, Johnson is known for his stellar defense.  Winner of the Selke Memorial Trophy as best defensive forward, it is Johnson's dedication to defense over offense that helped propel R-Plecz to a 6-3-1 regular season record.  If he's no defending, Kyle can be found spending time with his wife, who he attends Duquense with.

Steve Roskey
Number: 14
Height: 6'1"
Weight: 175 lbs
Position(s): LW/C
Experience: 5 Years
R-Plecz's all-time scoring leader and resident WMD expert returns for his fifth season with the franchise. Without question the most feared member of the R-Plecz firing squad, Roskey is always looking to inflict pain on the nearest member of the opposition. It is a well-documented fact that the slightest form of anything resembling a body check from the centerman will result in immediate and spontaneous combustion of the opponent in question. It is also rumored that his equipment is entirely constructed from human skulls. Roskey is well known for his exhibition use of the legendary "Chimo" stick, reported as being the only one ever in existence. Alas, it is no more... However, one cringes at the thought of The Punisher using this incredible scoring weapon of mass destruction within the realm of regular season games.

Zac Talmadge
Number: 10
Height: 6'9"
Weight: 190 lbs
Position: RW/LW
Experience: 5 Years
The big brother of the team, Talmadge is perhaps R-Plecz's most reliable player.  While his hockey career began only a few years ago, he brings veteran-like poise to the team.  Known for his long reach and hard work, Talmadge is not a player to be taken lightly.  As Zac guides his younger brother Jordan towards future stardom, he also guides his fraternity brothers towards drinking, community service, good values, and hot bitches.  Zac is perhaps best known for unleashing an Al Macinnis slapshot at Northmoreland Park which severed the testicles of an anonymous teammate. Zac was also the Alternate Captain of the Kiski Area Junior Varsity team.  If he can't outskate you, he'll outwork you.  If he can't outwork you, he'll outsmart you.  Many foes have learned of this as Zac continues to dominate life at Washington and Jefferson University.
