HARTFORD, April 1, 2015: Hartford Wolf Pack general manager Jim Schoenfeld announced today that the Wolf Pack has signed defenseman Brady Skjei to an Amateur Tryout (ATO) agreement.

Skjei, who comes to the Wolf Pack after three years at the University of Minnesota, was selected by the parent New York Rangers in the first round (28th overall) of the 2012 NHL Entry Draft.
