Duluth, GA – The Gladiators have re-signed goalie Ben Halford. Halford comes to Atlanta from the SPHL where he played with the Fayetteville Marksmen for most of the season. Ben did, however, begin the year with the Gladiators.
The Lenox, Massachusetts native played his college hockey for Princeton University, spending four seasons with the Tigers from 2014-18. After his senior year, he went straight to the Marksmen getting into four games that same season.
In 2018-19, his first full year as a pro, he moved up to the ECHL playing in 13 games for the Kansas City Mavericks. That same season, he spent a short time with the AHL’s San Antonio Rampage.
After spending some time early in the season during opening weekend with the Gladiators, Ben joined the Marksmen. In two games with Fayetteville this season, he was 0-0-1 with a 3.12 GAA.
