Pool back for third season with Fury

Goaltender Clayton Pool has re-upped with the Muskegon Fury and will begin his third year with the club this fall.

"We are excited to have Clayton signed and set to return for another season with our club," Muskegon head coach Todd Nelson said. "Last season, he had the opportunity to log a lot of games and ice time for us. Having gained that valuable experience, we expect Clayton to be a matured and stronger goaltender than in the past. There is no question that he has the ability and the record to emerge as one of the premiere goaltenders in the UHL He has the chance of being very, very successful here and we look forward to a real break-out year from him.”

In his rookie year of 2004-2005, Pool went 18-6-5 with a 2.37 goals-against average and a .914 save percentage and two shutouts en route to Muskegon's fourth Colonial Cup. Last year, Pool was 29-10-3 with a 3.07 GAA and a .899 SV%.

Muskegon now has 11 players under contract for the 2006-2007 campaign.
