Storm's Mitchell signs with Wild

Press Release

The Guelph Storm Hockey Club is pleased to announce that forward Zack Mitchell has signed a three-year, entry level contract with the NHL's Minnesota Wild, starting in the 2014-15 season.

"Zack is very deserving of an NHL contract, as he has been our most consistent two-way forward over the last two seasons," said Storm GM Mike Kelly.  "The Wild have a made a very shrewd free-agent signing on a player who has a good chance to be a top-nine forward on an NHL roster."

In 62 games with the Storm this season, Mitchell sits fourth on the club with 77 points, and leads all Storm forwards with a plus-45 rating.  He recently became the franchise's all-time leader in games played and has tallied 237 points in 317 games over five OHL seasons.
