ANCHORAGE -

The Alaska Aces have added depth to their roster with a pair of home grown talents.  The Kelly Cup Champions have signed forward Tyler Currier and goaltender Steve Summerhays.  Both Currier and Summerhays are from Anchorage.  

At 6-foot, 188 pounds, Summerhays was a rock in net for Notre Dame.  He was named the team's MVP in the 2013-14 season where he recorded 7 shutouts and 21 wins.  After the season ended Summerhays was picked up by the Fort Wayne Komets of the ECHL where he went 2-0-0 with a 1.92 goals-against-average going along with a .922 save percentage.

Currier, who spent his collage career playing in the Sullivan Arena for UAA, spent last season in the Central Hockey League playing for the Missouri Mavericks.  The 6-foot-2 forward tallied 9 points on 4 goals and 5 assists to go along with 22 penalty minutes.  At the Aces office Thursday Currier was excited to be playing in Anchorage but he wasn't the only one in the Currier family saying "My dad was probably the happiest....and my sister right after that."

In a press release issued by the team head coach Rob Murray was quoted saying "Steve and Tyler are two players we've had our eye on, with potential to enhance our depth and provide a valuable contribution."

Currier and Summerhays represent the 5th and 6th players signed by the Alaska Aces for the 2014-15 season.
