Superman is back in Calgary!
After a long holdout due to contract negotiations star forward Curtis Dicksion has come to a contract agreement and signed with the Calgary Roughnecks. As of Friday night they were waiting on approval from the league. The forward had been one of two key players holding out in Calgary along with Wes Berg. Brandon Astle first reported the news on Friday night.
Dickson was drafted 3rd overall by Calgary in the 2010 draft and has spent his entire career with the Roughnecks. Through eight seasons in Calgary Dickson has a career total of 641 points (360G,281A).
Through the first four weeks of the season Calgary has gone 3-1 as they lost to Vancouver in week one, beat Vancouver in week two, defeated San Diego in week three, and beat Colorado in week four. It is reported that Dickson will be suiting up for the Roughnecks week five matchup at home against the New England Blackwolves.
Dickson will be a huge addition to the Roughnecks offense as they were already playing very well without him thus far. Without Dickson the Roughnecks have had to lean on Dane Doobie, Rhys Duch, and others for production on the offense side of the floor. Dickson adds another very good option for Calgary to look to for production on the offensive end of the floor.
