GREENVILLE, S.C. - The Greenville Swamp Rabbits announced that the club has re-signed experienced defenseman Frank Hora to a contract ahead of the 2022-23 season. 

Hora, 26, returns to the Swamp Rabbits after beginning the 2021-22 season with Greenville and the Charlotte Checkers before finishing the season on a AHL contract with the Syracuse Crunch. Having made 71 appearances for the Swamp Rabbits during the 2020-21 season, the Cheektowaga, New York native played in just eight games for Greenville and posted five points (1g-4a) during the 2021-22 campaign. 

The blue-liner made a pair of appearances with Charlotte before signing with Syracuse for a 42-game showing where he recorded seven assists. 

Prior to his arrival in Greenville, Hora recorded 12 games in the AHL with the Cleveland Monsters and the Lehigh Valley Phantoms between the 2016-17 and 2018-19 seasons. 

In his ECHL career, the veteran defenseman has played in 271 games between the Reading Royals, Cincinnati Cyclones and the Swamp Rabbits and has totaled 74 points (14g-60a) over that span. 

Before beginning his professional career, Hora captained the Ontario Hockey League's Kitchener Rangers during the 2016-17 season, capping a four-season tenure with the junior club.
