The Las Vegas Wranglers' roster is starting to fill up as the team announced it had agreed to terms with two defensemen and one forward on Tuesday morning.
The most veteran of the three, 26-year-old defenseman Sean Hurley, is entering his second full professional season. He played in 46 games for the Bakersfield Condors last season while also seeing times with the Worcester Sharks and Norfolk Admirals of the American Hockey League.
Prior to turning pro, the 6-foot-3, 211-pound Rutland, Vermont native, starred at Brown University where he posted 79 points in 126 games.
"Sean was a player sought after heavily following a great collegiate career,” said Wranglers general manager and head coach Ryan Mougenel in a press release. “I'm excited to work with him to get him to that elite level. He’ll be a very responsible, offensive defenseman for us."
The other two joining Hurley are John Schwarz and Jeff Hazelwood.
Schwarz might be a familiar face to some Wranglers fans as he appeared in four games last season on an Amateur Tryout Agreement following four years at Michigan Tech.
The forward added to the Wranglers roster is 24-year-old rookie Jeff Hazelwood. The Dublin, Calif. native spent the last two years at Curry College where earned ECAC Northeast Player of the Year honors for leading Curry with 25 goals and 23 assists in just 27 games. In 53 games collegiate games, Hazelwood posted 93 points.
These new Wranglers and will take the ice Oct. 2 for the start of the training camp.
