Wilderness Alumni Romanko Signs with Orlando Solar Bears in ECHL

ORLANDO, Fla. – The Orlando Solar Bears have announced that the club has agreed to terms with rookie forward Darian Romanko for the 2019-20 season.

“Darian got into some games at this level late in the season, and we feel his game translated well,” Solar Bears head coach and general manager Drake Berehowsky said. “He’s got solid defensive instincts and we feel there’s room for him to continue to grow his offensive game.”

“I was already aware of the team’s track record on the ice, but as I went through the recruitment process, I learned about how the organization treats its players and encourages them to perform at their best,” Romanko said. “I’m beyond excited to play for the Solar Bears and cannot wait for the season to start.”

Romanko was a leader on the ice for the Wilderness from 2013-2015, playing 131 games and tallying 125 points.
