Danbury Whalers President and General Manager Herm Sorcher announced Tuesday that forward Marty Moucha has signed an agreement to return to the Danbury Whalers for the 2011-12 hockey season.

Moucha, a native of Mountain Top, Pennsylvania, by way of Mlada Boleslav, Czech Republic, was a mid-season free-agent signing by the Danbury Whalers in the 2010-2011 season.  In only 17 games, Moucha posted 10 goals, 21 assists, for 33 points and logged an amazing plus-23.  In five playoff games, Moucha tallied four points (1g, 3a) and was plus-2.

In the 2010-11 season, Moucha played five games with the Elmira Jackals of the East Coast Hockey League (ECHL) where he posted two goals and an assist.

Moucha’s season’s highlight’s included a hat trick and a helper for a four point night  on Feb. 20 against the Akwesasne Warriors, and a five-point night (2g & 3a) against Cape Cod on Jan. 29, as well as a second four point effort (1g & 3a) on Feb. 4th versus Cape Cod.

A measure of consistency, Moucha scored in 14 of the 17 games he played and the team posted a record of 11-4-2 in those contests.

“We fell short of our goal last year, “ Moucha said speaking of his return to Danbury. “This year we are going to do it and like (Head Coach Phil Esposito) says…. Whatever it Takes”
