By signing the American player Chad Costello, the Stavanger Oilers secured another reinforcement before the start of the new ice hockey season.

Costello will be joining the Oilers after playing for Krefeld Penguine in the German elite series.

The Oilers announced their newest addition on their website.

Costello played three seasons in the German elite series and was the league’s second-best scorer last season.

In total, he scored 106 points in 104 games for Krefeld.

The 34-year-old from Iowa has previously played for various clubs in the AHL and ECHL.

Between 2014 and 2017, he was the captain of the Allen Americans with 426 goal points in 276 games and two ECHL titles.

Costello must now wait for processing of his entry and work permit.
