TACOMA, WA. – Forward Micheal Ramos has been a member of the Stars for seven years since he debuted in the MASL in 2015, and he will remain with the club for at least two more as Tacoma has announced the re-signing of the Spokane native. Per team and league policies, the terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

Ramos tied a career-high in games played last season with 24 appearances, the third time he played in every regular-season game for the Stars. His 23 points (15G-8A) raised his career totals to 113 goals and 66 assists in 136 games, good for a 1.3 points-per-game average.

In addition to his regular-season totals, Ramos has played in seven playoff games for the Stars with four goals and three assists in those games. In December 2020, he also notched a pair of assists in the Western Conference’s win over the East in the MASL All-Star Game held at Cable Dahmer Arena in Independence, MO.

Tacoma’s 155 goals scored last season was the third-highest in the MASL and Stars General Manager Nick Perera believes Ramos is preparing to elevate that number next season.

“Mike Ramos is a special player and a Tacoma Star through and through. We have long known how special Mike is, but this offseason he has taken his preparations to another level, and I can’t wait to see the impact he’s going to have on the field, in our locker room, and in our community,” Perera said.

Ramos is ready.

“I’m happy to be re-signing. If you’ve been a Tacoma Star in your professional career, you know what the deal and the culture is here. Let’s do something great!”
