DULUTH, Ga. – The Atlanta Gladiators announced that the team has re-signed forward Sanghoon Shin for the 2022-23 season. 

Shin burst onto the North American hockey scene with 22 points (13g-9a) in 31 games for the Gladiators last season. The Seoul, South Korea native caught fire in mid-February and recorded goals in seven straight games from Feb. 18 to March 4. That run tied Shin with Glads teammate Cody Sylvester for the longest goal streak in the league last season.

Shin is currently serving as an alternate captain for the Asia League's Anyang Halla, a team he has skated with for five of the last seven seasons. The 29-year-old also represented South Korea on the world stage at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea. 

The forward made an impact almost immediately after arriving in Atlanta. Signed on Jan. 31, Shin made his Gladiators debut on Feb. 2 and recorded his first two assists in his second game on Feb. 6.
