The Tacoma Stars have announced an addition to their roster of defenders by signing MASL veteran Diego Salas to a deal. As per team and league policy, terms of the agreement were not disclosed and is pending visa approval.

Salas, a 2017-18 MASL All-Rookie Honorable Mention, was a regular in the El Paso Coyotes line-up. He appeared in 40 games over two seasons with El Paso, including every game during his rookie season. During his first MASL campaign, Salas notched 14 points on eight goals and six assists. Although he only appeared in 18 games last season, four less than his first season, he significantly increased his offensive production including 13 goals and 10 assists.

Head coach Nick Perera is excited about the addition of Salas. “Diego has incredible pace and ability. We saw and felt first-hand last season how dangerous he can be, and the impact he can have on a match. I think he’s going to bring a different dimension to our play and it’s my pleasure to welcome him into the Stars family.”
