Wolf Pack Sign Forward Andrew Carroll To PTO
HARTFORD, February 12, 2010: Hartford Wolf Pack general manager Jim Schoenfeld announced today that the team has signed forward Andrew Carroll to a Professional Tryout (PTO) agreement.
This is the second tour of duty with the Wolf Pack for Carroll, a rookie out of the University of Minnesota-Duluth, who comes to the Wolf Pack from the team's ECHL affiliate, the Charlotte Checkers. In two games earlier this season with the Pack, Carroll was scoreless and even, with seven penalty minutes.
Carroll was leading the Charlotte club in goals with 21, a total that was good for fourth among ECHL rookies, in 40 games, and also had 12 assists for 33 points, third-best on the Checker team. His total of 82 penalty minutes ranked him fifth on the Charlotte squad.
Last season Carroll, a 6-0, 200-pound native of Shoreview, MN, joined the Checkers after his college season ended. He was scoreless, with two PIM, in one regular season game and chipped in two assists, with 11 PIM, in six ECHL playoff contests. In 43 WCHA games with Minnesota-Duluth in 2008-09, Carroll registered five goals and seven assists for 12 points, and served 36 minutes in penalties.
In 153 career games in four years at UMD, the 24-year-old Carroll had 29 goals and 28 assists for 57 points, plus 113 penalty minutes.
The Wolf Pack are back in action tonight, as they travel to Providence to take on the Bruins in a 7:05 PM game (WTIC HD-2, www.hartfordwolfpack.com, www.wtic.com ). The Wolf Pack's next home game is tomorrow night, Saturday, February 13, a GEICO Connecticut Cup matchup vs. the Bridgeport Sound Tigers (7:00).
