Manchester Storm have moved quickly to add injury cover in the shape of Logan Flodell, most recently of Zaglebie Sosnowiec (Poland).

Flodell had a stellar major junior career in his native WHL, from 2013-2018. During this five-year spell, the goaltender posted .908 SV% and 2.92 GAA – with an overall record of 86-53-13. From the WHL, Flodell represented Acadia University (USports) between 2018-2022, sharing the ice with a handful of former Storm players in the process. He would later in 2022 make his professional debut for South Carolina Stingrays (ECHL) before being traded to Reading Royals.

This move evidently benefitted the young shot-stopper, as he stole the crease from more established goaltenders in the franchise. The Pennsylvanian outfit and Flodell shared a white hot 13-1-1 record with him between the pipes. During this winning streak, Flodell had a remarkable .930 SV% and 2.04 GAA. The Royals made a deep Kelly Cup play-off run with Flodell sharing the crease with USA Olympic squad making Pat Nagle. This string of impressive performances saw Belleville Senators sign Flodell to an AHL contract for the 2022-23 campaign. Unfortunately, several NHL contracted netminders (to the affiliated Ottawa Senators) blocked the progress of Flodell.

As a result, the Canadian decided to take his talents to Europe. Flodell opted to sign with the lowly positioned Zaglebie Sosnowiec of Poland’s top-flight in mid November. However, after just three league appearances the goaltender had seen enough and jumped at the opportunity presented to him by the Storm.
