German prospect Philip Gogulla, 21, has been given a public warning for being in violation of National Anti-Doping Agency (NADA) procedures. A member of the NADA test pool, the Dusseldorf native committed his first program offense after missing a quarterly reporting deadline. Despite the warning, it should be noted that the 6'2 forward provided clean results when submitting a test.
"In January, the online sheet was filled out, but apparently it was posted incorrectly. The unintentional violation of the deadline annoyed me deeply. It was a blunder of mine, from which I will certainly learn. Dealing with the reporting requirement is still quite new for us, but this may no excuse for my mistake."Chosen 48th overall in 2005, Gogulla has opted to return for a fifth season with the Cologne Sharks (DEL) in 2008-09.
