In The Crease: Csaba Kercso-Magos

Csaba Kercso-Magos may have what some Kiwis consider a hard to pronounce name, but the Hungarian-born goaltender has definitely made a name for himself in the NZIHL – being awarded top goalie honours in 2017 before helping the West Auckland Admirals secure their first Birgel Cup victory in 2018.

Kercso-Magos was recently named into the 2019 New Zealand Ice Blacks squad that will play in Mexico City for the IIHF Worlds, creating a formidable tandem in net with fellow Admirals goalie Rick Parry.

He joins goalie/scientist Joel ‘Dr J’ Rindelaub for the third instalment of ‘In The Crease’.
