The Jr Trappers also announced the signing of 1994 birth year forward Zach Turner.
The Columbus, Ohio product had 32 points in 45 games with the Wooster Oilers of the Minnesota Junior Hockey League last season.
"I like the city, it seems like it's a great hockey town and the Trappers name carries a lot of tradition in this city," said Turner.
"I will try to play a key role with this team. I've been a playmaker and I will do everything to get the job done and be a leader."
