The blueliner has joined EC Hannover Indians after just one season in Kirkcaldy. Hausinger iced in 53 games for Flyers, logging 22 points in total.

The 26-year old skater from Anchorage, Alaska, was one of a number of new faces in the Kirkcaldy line-up for the 2022-23 season.

He etched his name into the club record books with a hat-trick in a remarkable 4-4 tie at Dundee Stars in the Challenge Cup after stepping up to play as a forward to help a team crippled by injuries. It later transpired it was the first hat-trick from a Fife defenceman in any competition in the club’s EIHL era which spans over a decade of hockey.

“It’s nice to get my name in the record books,” he said at the time. “It’s a big milestone - one I’ll never forget. It makes my time here all the more special.”
