The sizable 6’4″ 210 lbs. young blue liner skated in 6 games with minor league affiliate Adirondack Phantoms after finishing up his third year at University Of Minnesota. He recorded his first pro goal and assist in his short stint with the team.
He returned on reassignment after attending the parent club’s prospect and regular training camps bringing with him a steady, stay-at-home style that may have been a little light on the score sheet but heeded a solid +39 rating through his collegiate playing time.
In 19 AHL games he’s pocketed another goal and added 5 more assists.
The 22-year old is signed through 2016 on a three-year entry level deal and will likely realize some NHL playing time sooner than later.
