Hockey: McGill grad Urquhart re-ups with Hartford

Former McGill all-Canadian defenceman David Urquhart has earned a new one-year contract with the American Hockey League's Hartford Wolf Pack, the farm club of the NHL's New York Rangers.

Urquhart played 58 games in Hartford, recording 14 points (6G-8A) and a +13 plus/minus. That's not a bad first year in pro hockey, especially for someone used to playing about 40-45 games in collegiate hockey. Even four-year NCAA players need time to make that adjustment.

(As an Ottawa resident who's not a Senators fans, it's tempting to say if carrying Wade Redden's contract ever gets too burdensome for the Rangers, they could send him to Hartford and call up Urquhart.)

  1. Good for David. It would be nice if a few more guys who dont make the bigs at 19 or 20 would play CIS hockey and maybe mature physically and still get a shot at 22 or 23. Heck, AHL players still make good coin.
