Springfield, Mass. - The Springfield Falcons, AHL affiliate of the NHL's Columbus Blue Jackets, announced on Friday that they have signed defenseman Patrick Cullity to a standard player contract for the remainder of the 2012-2013 campaign.
Cullity began the current season with the ECHL's Idaho Steelheads, accumulating five points (2g-3a) to go along with a +3 rating in 16 games.
A third-year pro, Cullity skated the majority of the 2011-2012 season with the Falcons, posting his first-ever AHL goal and adding eight assists for nine points while checking in at +1 in 44 contests. Cullity also participated in five games with the Abbotsford Heat and in 20 outings with the ECHL's Utah Grizzlies last year, notching one assist each with the two clubs.
In his rookie season of 2010-2011, Cullity saw action in 71 of 72 games with the ECHL's South Carolina Stingrays, scoring two goals and adding 15 assists for 17 points, tying for second among the club's defensemen in scoring, and sharing the team lead at +14.
Cullity commenced his professional career with Syracuse at the end of the 2009-2010 campaign, playing in five games with the Crunch.
A native of Tewksbury, Mass., Cullity skated four seasons collegiately at the University of Vermont (NCAA, D-I) from 2006 to 2010. With the Catamounts, Cullity posted two goals and 23 assists for 25 points while totaling 252 penalty minutes in 145 career games.
