INDEPENDENCE, Mo. – The Kansas City Mavericks announced Tuesday the club has signed forward Greg Betzold to a Standard Player Contract (SPC) for the 2020-21 season.
Betzold, a six-foot-three 203-pound forward from West Chester, Ohio will be among the longest tenured Mavericks on the roster this upcoming season.

“Greg showed exceptional work ethic with our training staff and (Head Athletic Trainer) Nick Potter during his rehab last season,” Mavericks Head Coach and Director of Hockey Operations Tad O’Had said, “We believe Greg has incredible abilities as a player. He’s a lethal shooter and puck distributor. Greg has a high hockey IQ and can contribute in all three zones for us. When he’s at his best, Greg is a force to be reckoned with and we feel strongly that his best hockey is in front of him.”
Betzold ranks 14th in Mavericks history in games played,13th in goals scored, 13th in points and will join the ranks of Andrew Courtney, Sebastien Thinel, Rocco Carzo and John-Scott Dickson as players who have played in four seasons for the Mavericks.
