The Tacoma Stars have re-signed their leading scorer from the 2017-18 Major Arena Soccer League season, Nick Perera, to a new deal.

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

Perera joined the Stars and appeared in 12 games after arriving via trade with the Syracuse Silver Knights.

Perera scored 20 goals to go with 10 assists in uniform with Tacoma after notching six points in three games with Syracuse. In 93 career MASL games, Perera has 93 goals and 83 assists for 176 points.

“I’m very proud and excited to be playing for the Tacoma Stars this season,” Perera said. “I felt an immediate connection with the players, fans and the organization. It’s a privilege to work with such wonderful people. Special thanks have to go out to coach Darren Sawatzky and Lane Smith for welcoming me into the Tacoma Stars family.”

Although the schedule has not been released, the Stars return to action in December and are set to host 12 regular-season matches.
