Watt returns to Muskegon for '07-08

Forward Mike Watt will return to the Muskegon Fury this fall for his second year with the IHL team as player-assistant coach.

Last season, Watt, 31, finished ninth in UHL scoring with 35 goals among 79 points. He was also named the league's most sportsmanlike player.

“The return of Mike Watt represents a huge signing for the Muskegon Fury organization," Fury head coach Bruce Ramsay said. "The assets and attributes he brings to us are vast. He brings that key veteran leadership which is so vital to the successes that we enjoyed last season and for the upcoming season. He probably possesses the hardest shot in the league and always plays a strong and responsible game defensively. In addition, Mike will, again, serve in the capacity of our assistant coach. Through that role, he will instill the importance of our team systems and also play an important part in working with our young players. Mike is one of the most outstanding players in our league.”

Muskegon now has nine players under contract for next season.
