"Shut the other team down!"

The Cold Lake Aeros are excited to announce the signing of John Urgo from Buffalo Grove, Illinois!

John is the prototypical ''Shut down defenseman''. At 6' and 185 lbs, Urgo last played for the Dell Ducks of the USPHL Premier League. 

John's career highlights feature NIHL Elite Gold champions, Second place U16 Blackhawks cup, “Unsung Hero” Award Dells Ducks USPHL, Alternate Captain Dells Ducks.

Urgo proudly wore the letter A for the Dells Ducks USPHL. He played there for two seasons as a defenseman, leads by example with his work ethic on and off the ice. He communicates well and forms a lifetime bond with his teammates. He gives it 110% every time he’s on the ice. He is a shut down defenseman who puts his body in-front of shots every shift and does whatever  it takes to get the puck out of the D zone to create offensive opportunities.

Coach Bricknell says "John's got great size and brings leadership to our team. We're excited about having him bring his defensive capabilities to the Aeros!" 

Welcome to Cold Lake and the Aeros hockey club, John! You're going to love playing at the Cold Lake Energy Centre!!
