Wolves sign Zach O’Brien


July 14, 2015

The Chicago Wolves announced Tuesday that they have signed forward ZACH O’BRIEN to a contract for the 2015-16 season.

 

The 23-year-old joins the Wolves following a Calder Cup-winning campaign with the Manchester Monarchs in 2014-15. In his first full season in the American Hockey League he achieved career highs in goals (14), points (32), and plus/minus rating (+12) in 62 games. During the postseason he collected 9 points (3G, 6A) in 19 games, including 3 points (G, 2A) in the team’s 4-1 series win over Utica in the Calder Cup Final.

The St. John’s, Newfoundland, native has accrued 61 points (24G, 37A), 8 penalty minutes, and a +21 plus/minus rating in 112 career AHL games with St. John’s (2011-12) and Manchester (2013-15). Additionally he has posted 11 points (5G, 6A) in 23 total Calder Cup tilts and spent a brief stint in the ECHL in 2013-14, contributing four points (2G, 2A) and a +6 plus/minus rating in five games for Ontario.

Prior to turning pro, O’BRIEN spent parts of four seasons in the QMJHL with Rouyn-Noranda (2009-10) and Acadie Bathurst (2009-13). He compiled 260 points (127G, 133A), 2 penalty minutes, and a +43 plus/minus rating in 192 games, twice winning the Frank J. Selke Memorial Trophy as the league’s most sportsmanlike player. He added 17 points (5G, 12A) in 15 playoff contests.

In accordance with team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The Wolves celebrate the start of their 22nd season with the home opener on Saturday, Oct. 10, at Allstate Arena. To discover the team’s best summertime deals on season tickets and group outings, visit ChicagoWolves.com or call 1-800-THE-WOLVES.
