The Mavericks are the ECHL affiliate of the National Hockey League’s New York Islanders and the American Hockey League’s Bridgeport Sound Tigers.

Nowick joined the Mavericks last season following the completion of his collegiate career at Northern Michigan University. The 24-year-old forward registered seven points (2g-5a) in 13 regular-season games before adding another three points (2g-1a) in 10 Kelly Cup Playoffs games. Nowick debuted with a three-point effort (1g-2a) in the Mavericks’ 6-3 win over Allen on March 16, 2016.

Tansey comes to the Mavericks after finishing his career at Clarkson University with six points (4g-2a) and 16 penalty minutes in 34 games as a senior. Those 34 games pushed his total to 151 played for the Golden Knights which rank second all-time in school history.
