Dolyny back for sixth season in Muskegon

Muskegon Fury captain Rustyn Dolyny will be back for his sixth straight season with the team after agreeing to terms on a contract today.

Dolyny, a former Michigan State Spartan from 1997-2001, scored 26 goals among 67 points last year and tacked on 131 penalty minutes. This season will be his third with the 'C.'

“Obviously, we are elated to have Rustyn back in our lineup for the new season," Muskegon head coach Todd Nelson said. "He does everything on the ice for us. He plays power play, penalty-kill, skates a regular shift and is always on the ice in key game situations. In addition, he is tough and offers our club strong leadership skills as our captain.

"Also, he is integral to us due to the importance of maintaining strong chemistry in the locker room and on the ice. Rustyn is very well liked by his teammates and the organization as well as by the fans and the community. In short, he is a real asset to the Fury both on and off the ice.”

In East Lansing, Dolyny, 29, recorded 69 goals and 84 assists in 168 games.
