Wolves Sign Jeremy Price to ATO

The Chicago Wolves have signed defenseman Jeremy Price to an Amateur Tryout Contract (ATO). In addition, center Alex Friesen has been reassigned from the Wolves to the ECHL's Kalamazoo Wings.

PRICE wrapped up a four-year college career at Colgate University on March 9 when his team was defeated by St. Lawrence in the first round of the ECAC Conference Tournament. He paced Colgate defensemen with 14 assists and 20 points in 36 games during the 2012-13 campaign.

The 22-year-old blueliner set career-highs with 21 assists and 23 points in 36 contests with Colgate as a junior in 2011-12. Overall, he amassed 19 goals, 49 helpers, and 68 points in 149 games with Colgate from 2009-13.

The Milton, Ontario, native was drafted by the Vancouver Canucks with their fourth selection, 90th overall, in the 2009 National Hockey League Entry Draft.

The Wolves travel to Michigan for a showdown against the Midwest Division-leading Grand Rapids Griffins at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, March 13. For more information, or to buy tickets to Wolves home games, visit chicagowolves.com or call 1-800-THE-WOLVES.
