Mike Marcou(26) Greenville Road Warriors

Mike Marcou

2nd year, undrafted defenseman Mike Marcou(26) signed a one-year two-way AHL deal with Hartford Wolf Pack for 2013/2014.

He had an outstanding rookie season with affiliate Greenville Road Warriors putting up 6 goals and 19 assists for 25 points, which led d-men; and had a team second-best +19 rating.

Reassigned to the ECHL to start his sophomore campaign, he is set to eclipse those first year marks, already scoring 6 goals and 14 assists at the half way point.

The somewhat bigger looking than his 5’11” 180 lbs. stats might suggest recently received his initial call-up and skated in a couple games before being returned. He also played in 2 contests with Oklahoma City Barons after his college career at UMass-Amherst finished up and was recalled once by San Antonio Rampage last season.

The 24-year old may still be looking for his first point in the higher league but in his short stint was a +2 plus/minus and looked to fit in nicely with team chemistry.

Given the opportunity there’s every reason to believe he will find a more permanent spot on a triple A roster.
