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.
