CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – The Corpus Christi IceRays have announced the signing of defenseman Trevor Heuser, their first of six potential affiliate players.
Heuser comes from the New Jersey Titans U16 team in the NAPHL. So far through nine games played on defense, Heuser has three goals and seven assists.
“We are excited to give Trevor the opportunity to gain some experience this week to take back to New Jersey,” said head coach Justin Quenneville. “Although he is young, he is being recruited extensively for his skill set, physicality, and hockey IQ. This affiliation ensures continuity through our recruiting process and allows us to give young players such as Trevor an opportunity to play a few games in our face paced and competitive level.”
USA Hockey allows teams to sign up to six players who can play up to six games with an NAHL club of their choice without the team having to make any roster moves. The affiliation allows teams to bring in potential players and have them gain experience.
“For him to take in the environment of what an everyday junior hockey player goes through for a week, will help provide the necessary tools to continue to build towards his goals of playing junior hockey and we look forward to getting him on the ice” said Quenneville.
The IceRays are on home ice this weekend as they take on the New Mexico Mustangs this Friday and Saturday night. Puck drops at 7:05PM, coverage begins at 6:50PM with the IceRays Pregame Show on ESPN Radio 1440AM.
