(HUNTSVILLE) - The Huntsville Havoc have selected Jacksonville Barracudas goaltender Tim Haun, forward Frank Furdero and defenseman Billy Rochefort in the SPHL dispersal draft.
The Barracudas, last Wednesday, announced they were leaving the league because they could not find a suitable place to play for the 2008-09 season. The SPHL granted them a one-year suspension.
Haun, the top pick in the dispersal draft, was the leading goalie in the SPHL in goals-against average (2.45) and save percentage (92%). He finished with a 13-3-3 record and had one shutout in 23 games played. The rookie goaltender was 4-2 with a 2.83 GAA in the playoffs and was named a first-team All-Star.
Furdero played in 16 games and scored 8 goals and recorded 10 assists. He also added 4 goals and 9 assists in eight playoff games.
Rochefort has played in 283 career games in the UHL and SPHL. The defenseman has scored three goals and recorded 33 assists.
The draft pool included all 18 players on the Barracudas playoff roster.
Havoc head coach Eric Soltys also announced that former Barracuda forward Patrick Doherty has signed a 2008-09 tryout agreement with the Havoc. He has played in 141 career games in the SPHL with the Pee Dee Cyclones and the Barracudas and scored 62 goals and recorded 54 assists.
Also signing tryout agreements were Samuel Bergeron and Jean-Philippe Roy-Vallieres.
The Havoc also announced that Dan Buccella, Craig Bushey, Matt Carmichael, Matt Curley, Tim Hockley, Jonathan Lounsbury, Bill McCreary, Beau McLaughlin, Mike O'Sullivan, James Patterson, Bobby Sears, Jeff Valdes and Edan Welch have all signed tryout agreements for next season.
