3rd year undrafted right wing Jack Downing(80) starts the 2013/2014 season much like he did in his first couple of years, in the ECHL on reassignment. He joins South Carolina Stingrays.
He was in both Boston and Providence training camps. Signed to a 1-year deal with P-Bruins, he was an invite to the parent club’s camp.
Despite beginning his campaigns in the lower league, he’s played in more AHL games with Binghamton Senators in two seasons than he did with their affiliate Elmira Jackals.
The fairly big 6’3″ 200 lbs. forward has almost a point-per-game average in the ECHL but has only half the success in the AHL.
At 24-years old he still has plenty to prove to move up more permanently.
