Underdrafted rookie right wing Luke Judson(7) first popped up on the radar with an invite to San Jose Sharks‘ 2013 development camp. The team had been scouting him for the last few seasons as he served as captain for OHL Belleville Bulls.
He next appeared in Worcester Sharks‘ training camp before being released.
The 6′ 200 lbs. forward took a bit of an odd route before inking his deal, deciding to first play a season of college hockey at Lakehead University.
Not the most prolific scorer, he did show an ability to connect with decent frequency through juniors and year at school.
The 23-year old only scored 4 goals through his first 31 games with a struggling SF squad and was probably relieved when they ceased operations.
He recently agreed to terms with Idaho Steelheads and the move will likely help him regain his scoring touch.
