Gogol (F), 26, played in 27 games for Greenville and put up six points (3G, 3A) and 94 penalty minutes. The Calgary, Alberta native has suited up for four teams in the ECHL including Colorado, Alaska, Florida, and Greenville and for a total of 66 points (30G, 36A) and 392 penalty minutes in 111 games.

The seventh-year pro made his professional debut for the Worcester Sharks (AHL) in 2011. He’s amassed 179 games in the AHL with the Iowa Wild, Ontario Reign, and Worcester Sharks.
