Former Viper, Mechanic inks with Fury

Kyle Kos, a former second-round pick of Tampa Bay, signed with the Muskegon Fury over the weekend.

Kos, who played minors in Michigan with the defunct Detroit Vipers of the old IHL and Motor City Mechanics of the UHL, will be entering his ninth pro season after inking a two-year deal with Muskegon.

“Having watched him for those two seasons with Motor City, we know that Kyle will be a major asset to the success of the Fury for this coming season," Muskegon head coach Bruce Ramsay said. "He is a big, solid defenseman who will bring plenty of attributes to our club. He is physical, moves the puck exceptionally well and has lots of great experience. With Kyle, Dave Van Drunen and Philippe Plante, we have a trio of stellar veteran defensemen who will not only shore up our back end but will also be vital to the development and maturing of our younger players.”

Last year, Kos, 28, tallied 21 points with the Rocky Mountain Rage of the Central Hockey League.
