Bombers Add WSHL Veteran Goalie Kozlowski

by Bombers Staff

The Long Beach Bombers are proud to announce the acquisition of veteran WSHL goaltender, Spencer Kozlowski. The deal was completed in the final hours before Long Beach’s home game against the Ontario Avalanche, last night. The Western Division battle of the top-2 teams ended with Bombers victory. Kozlowski comes to The Squad from their rivals, the Valencia Flyers. The two-year WSHL vet turns 20, next week. He stands 5’11 and weighs 180lbs. Kozlowski hails from Vancouver, British Columbia.

The Canadian netminder began his junior career in the KIJHL, followed by two seasons in the PIJHL, with the Port Moody Panthers and Grandview Steelers. Having split time with the Las Vegas Storm and Valencia Flyers, he has a career record of 29-21-6. With 57 starts and over 1700 career saves in the WSHL, he will add much-needed depth at the position. His 14 wins, this season, rank him 7th in the league. Bombers goaltender, Domenic Bosetti, has recorded 20 wins (ranked 3rd), making Long Beach the only WSHL team with two goaltenders in the top-10. Kozlowski should benefit from a Bombers defense that is averaging 3.32 goals against per game, compared to the Flyers’ 4.03 goals against per game.

Long Beach Bombers Head Coach & General Manager, Chris White, commented, “This is a very big add for our club. Domenic Bosetti has played more minutes than any WSHL goaltender, the last two seasons. He’s been battling through injury, almost all year, and Spencer gives us a solid veteran that has been in a number one role for most of his career. He’s familiar with the Western Division, and he’s going to give us a chance to win, when he’s in net. We’re excited to add him into the mix, in hopes of seeing a healthy competition amongst our goalies, as we prepare for playoffs. We threw him into the fire, last night, and he played very well (Long Beach defeated Ontario, 5-3, as Kozlowski made 33 saves)."
