Brendan Connolly Assigned to the Aces
The Alaska Aces has been assigned forward stud Brendan Connolly, from the AHL's Abbotsford Heat. Last season with the ECHL's Greenville Road Warriors, Connolly racked a career high 60 points in 65 games. That mark was good for a number two ranking in Greenville, and top 20 scoring in the ECHL.
"Brendan brings a remarkable skill set and fearless approach which set him above many players in our league," said Aces head coach Rob Murray. "He has the ability to take over games, be a threat and bring fans to their feet every shift. We're confident those attributes, along with his experience, will be valuable in complementing our leadership and depth for this season."
At 5'9" and 175-pounds, Connolly has an ECHL career 205 points in 217 games played. Prior to the pros, the Canmore, Alberta native skated 4 seasons with Ferris State University, tallying 81 points with a +4 in 147 games.
The Aces will begin their 2013-14 season at home on Friday, Oct. 18 at Sullivan Arena when they host the San Francisco Bulls. Season ticket and sponsorship packages are currently available through the Aces office at 15th & Gambell. For more information, call the Aces at 907.258.ACES.
