The Chicago Wolves announced Wednesday that forwards Conner Bleackley and Mackenzie MacEachern have been added to the team’s 2017 training camp roster, bringing the camp player total to 21 forwards, eight defenseman and five goaltenders.
Both players spent parts of the 2016-17 campaign with the Wolves. Bleackley collected 10 points (2G, 8A) in 45 games. MacEachern skated in 55 contests – missing time early in the season due to injury – and registered 11 points (5G, 6A). He added two goals and one assist in 10 Calder Cup Playoff games.
The 21-year-old Bleackley also played 14 ECHL games with the Missouri Mavericks and registered 17 points (7G, 10A) in that span.
MacEachern (2012, 67th overall) and Bleackley (2016, 144th overall) were both selected and signed by the St. Louis Blues.
