Finally, Sam Berg commits to the IceDogs after having been selected by the IceDogs in the 14th round of the 2012 OHL Priority Selection.  Berg split last season between the Buffalo Jr. Sabres and Hamilton Jr. Red Wings of the OJHL where he accumulated 12 goals and 12 assists for 24 points, as well as 215 penalty minutes in 52 games.
