GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. - The Grand Rapids Griffins on Thursday signed forward Patrick Curry to a two-year contract that will last through the 2021-22 season.

Curry, 24, concluded a four-year career at Boston University earlier this month, totaling 79 points (39-40-79), a plus-10 rating and 116 penalty minutes in 141 career games. Named Hockey East's Best Defensive Forward as a senior in 2019-20, he established career highs with 32 points and a team-best 19 goals, and equaled his career mark with 13 assists in 34 appearances. The 6-foot, 185-pound captain of the Terriers tied for second in Hockey East in goals and placed 14th in points while also ranking among the conference's leaders with four game-winning tallies (T2nd) and 111 shots on goal (T6th).

BU advanced to back-to-back NCAA Tournaments in 2017 and 2018, as Curry helped the team claim the 2018 Hockey East Tournament title and the 2016-17 regular season conference championship.

Prior to college, the Schaumburg, Ill., native skated in 147 games in the USHL from 2013-16 between Tri-City and Bloomington, recording 66 points (30-36-66) and 195 PIM. He ranked fourth on Bloomington in goals with 17 during his final campaign in 2015-16. Curry also spent part of the 2013-14 season with the Springfield Jr. Blues of the NAHL and posted 26 points (12-14-26) in 25 contests.
