The Tacoma Stars bolstered their offense with the signing of free-agent MASL veteran Alex Caceres to a deal.

Per team and league policies, terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

Caceres joins the Kent-based Stars after finishing third in scoring for the El Paso Coyotes last season by notching 22 points on four goals and 18 assists.

Caceres, a Medellin, Colombia native, began his professional indoor career with Toros Mexico during the 2012-13 season while also playing with the Atlanta Silverbacks outdoor team. After two stints with the Las Vegas Legends and one with the Monterrey Flash, Caceres found himself in the Stars MASL division playing for the Ontario Fury. He appeared in 16 games for the Fury in 2016-17 and six more the following season before being dealt to El Paso.

For his indoor career, Caceres has found playing time in 99 games and scored 71 goals. He has more assists than goals in his career and that will be a huge boost to the Stars offense.

“In Alex, we are adding composure, a cultured left foot and experience to our team. He’s a great locker room guy, and someone who can bring a lot of poise to our build-up play. I’m excited to welcome him to our Stars family,” coach Nick Perera said.
