Carr, Pleskach returning to Oilers for 2015-16


TULSA, Okla. – The Tulsa Oilers announced the signing of goaltender Kevin Carr and forward Adam Pleskach to contracts for the 2015-16 season. Carr returns to Tulsa after an outstanding rookie campaign while Pleskach will be back in Oilers’ colors for a third straight season.

Carr, 6-foot-1, 185-pounds, began last season as an unknown rookie out of Buffalo State University but quickly cemented his role as the Oilers’ top puck-stopper. The 24-year-old appeared in 52 of Tulsa’s 72 games during the regular season and set a new Oilers’ single-season record with a stellar 2.73 goals-against average. Carr, a native of Unionville, Ontario, was second in the ECHL in both minutes (3,015) and saves (1,420) and became the first Tulsa goalie to win 30 games in a season since 2002-03. In his first full season as a pro, Carr recorded three shutouts, posted a 6-2 record in shootouts, and registered a .912 save percentage.

After an outstanding rookie season in 2013-14, Pleskach emerged as one of the Oilers’ most potent offensive threats during his sophomore campaign. The right-winger out of Beausejour, Manitoba tied for the league lead with 41 goals and ranked second on the Tulsa roster with 71 points. Pleskach, 26, appeared in every game during the regular season and led the Oilers with 10 multi-goal outings. In 133 career games in Tulsa, the 6-foot-2, 210-pound Pleskach has posted 130 points (74g-56a) and needs just one more goal to move into 10th place on the Oilers’ all-time goals list.
