Monfredo was traded to the Rapid City Rush in 2016-17, where he posted 13 points in 27 games (3g, 10a). He would end up signing with Orlando in 2017-18, where he played in 152 career games with the Solar Bears before being dealt to Greenville. He has played in a grand total of 392 career ECHL games as he makes his way to the Hampton Roads area for the 2020-21 season.
