Eagles Add Forward, Seth Leonard Signs with Colorado
WINDSOR, CO- The Colorado Eagles of the Central Hockey League announced today that the team has signed forward Seth Leonard.
A native of Nakusp, British Columbia, Leonard played the past two seasons with the Victoria Salmon Kings of the East Coast Hockey League in which is accounted for 26 goals and 28 assists in 130 games played. Prior to joining the professional ranks, Leonard played junior hockey for both the Prince Albert Raiders and Kelowna Rockets in the Western Hockey League. In his final season in the WHL, Leonard had his best season scoring 90 points in just 72 games on 50 goals and 40 assists. The 5'9", 190-pound forward adds a scoring touch to the Eagles offense that has lost Steve Haddon, Erik Adams and Lee Arnold to the injured reserve.
"In Victoria, Seth was put in a position in which his offensive talents could not be fully reached," exclaimed Eagles Vice President and Head Coach Chris Stewart. "In our system, I feel Seth can improve upon the numbers that he has posted the past two seasons."
Leonard will begin his third professional with the Eagles this Friday night, November 17th, against the Rocky Mountain Rage in the Eagles first game at the Broomfield Event Center. The Eagles are currently 7-2-0 and in first place in the Northwest Division. Colorado plays at home this Saturday, November 18th, in the second game of a home-and-home series against the Rage. Tickets for all Eagles games are on sale by calling 877-544-TIXX or online at www.comcasttix.com. For more information, go to www.coloradoeagles.com.
