Connecticut Whale general manager Jim Schoenfeld announced today that the Whale has signed forward Steve Moses to an Amateur Tryout (ATO) agreement.
Moses, a 5-9, 170-pound native of Leominster, MA, just completed a four-year Hockey East career at the University of New Hampshire. The 22-year-old Moses led the Wildcats in goals, and tied for second among Hockey East skaters, this season with 22, and also added 13 assists for 35 points, good for a tie for the Wildcats’ team leadership in that department. He also served 16 minutes in penalties. Over his four seasons in a UNH uniform, Moses totaled 47 goals and 51 assists for 98 points, along with 65 PIM, in 148 games.
The Whale take the ice at the XL Center tonight, hosting the Portland Pirates in a 7:00 PM game. Fans can take advantage of a special food combo deal, available for all remaining Whale regular-season Friday-night home games, as a hot dog and a 12-ounce soda can be purchased for only $5. The Whale also play at home tomorrow night, Saturday, March 24 at 7:00, locking horns with the Providence Bruins.
