Fury signs forward Sergerie, defender Plante

The Muskegon Fury signed forward Adam Sergerie and All-Star defenseman Philippe Plante this week.

Sergerie just finished a three-year career in the Manitoba Junior Hockey League with the Selkirk Steelers where he literally re-wrote his team’s book of records. He posted 125 points in 56 games on 64 goals and 61 assists, while his 28 power-play goals also led the league and his 61 assists ranked as fifth most in the MJHL.

“We feel fortunate to have signed a rookie player of this stature as he was third in league-wide scoring and second overall in all of Canadian Junior ‘A’ Tier II hockey in goal production," noted Fury head coach Bruce Ramsay.

Plante will be starting his fourth season with Muskegon this fall. Finishing fourth on club in scoring last year, he had 67 points in 75 games on 18 goals and 47 assists with 102 penalty minutes and a +38 rating.

"Philippe, without question, is one of the best defensemen in our league," Ramsay said. "Both offensively and defensively, he really excels. Last season, he was the second best scoring defenseman in the whole league. He comes to play and works hard every night, every game. He is a team leader both on and off the ice and he always wants to win. With Phil and Dave Van Drunen, we have, perhaps, the two best defensemen at this level of our pro game.”

The Fury now have four players under contract for this upcoming season.
