Kostopoulos Returns 5/24

He’s back. Again.

Coal Street with the first major re-signing of the offseason, announcing Tuesday afternoon that team captain Tom Kostopoulos has signed on for the 2016-17 season.

Here are some thoughts from Kostopoulos, as told to Coal Street.

And more to the WBS media…

And a nice video montage on Kostopoulos, which I have to believe they had at the ready no matter what his decision was ultimately going to be.

You have to wonder what type of free agents Kostopoulos will attract back to Coal Street this offseason. I’d imagine that there is a list of quality players that would love to play for Kostopoulos in Wilkes-Barre. Time will tell.

The 2016 Offseason Moves list has been updated for the first time this season.

    Wow! I didn’t expect his decision so soon. I guess he didn’t want it lingering on him during the summer. Great news! Great to have him back!
