Goldeyes relief pitcher Chris Kissock (left) also has some hockey skills.

The Goldeyes locked down one of their key relievers from last year, picking up Chris Kissock for the 2014 season.

The Canadian right-handed pitcher, 28, appeared in 50 games for the Fish last year and killed it, hurling 56 strikeouts against just nine walks in 53.3 innings.

"He had a fantastic season last year in his American Association debut," Goldeyes manager Rick Forney said in a statement. "He was really consistent and reliable. He pounded the bottom of the strike zone and he wants to pitch every day. With him and Brendan Lafferty returning, we’re hoping our seventh and eighth inning situation will be as good this year as it was last year."

Kissock and Lafferty combined to make 103 appearances in 2013, which was the most of any duo in the American Association.

The Goldeyes now have 10 players signed for the 2014 season, including six pitchers and four position players.
