ORLANDO, Fla. — The Orlando Solar Bears have announced the acquisition of goaltender Stefanos Lekkas from the Fort Wayne Komets in exchange for future considerations.

Lekkas (LEHK-uhs), 25, has made one appearance this season with Fort Wayne, going 1-0-0 with a 2.00 goals-against average and a .895 save percentage.

The 6-foot, 185-pound netminder has appeared in 13 career ECHL games, all with the Komets, posting a 9-2-2 record with a 2.12 GAA and a .915 save percentage.
