Hilbrich Signs PTO with Wolves


February 21, 2018

The Chicago Wolves announced Wednesday that the club has signed forward Christian Hilbrich to a professional tryout contract.

The 6-foot-7, 228-pound Hilbrich joins the Wolves from the ECHL’s Toledo Walleye. He owns a team-best 19 goals and second-best 37 points. Through 52 games this season, Hilbrich has produced four power-play goals and 24 penalty minutes.

Following the conclusion of his senior season (2015-16) at Cornell University — where he served as captain — Hilbrich signed a professional contract with the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins for the 2016-17 campaign.

Hilbrich spent the majority of his pro rookie season with ECHL’s Wheeling Nailers and appeared in 65 games. His 45 points (16G, 29A) ranked second in scoring among the team’s rookies and sixth overall.

At the AHL level, Hilbrich skated in six games for the Penguins and made his league debut on Feb. 17, 2017. He has yet to record an AHL point.

The Port Credit, Ontario, native spent four seasons at Cornell and appeared in 115 games. He accrued 48 points (27G, 21A) during his tenure with the Big Red.

Hilbrich will be available when the Wolves face the Grand Rapids Griffins Wednesday, Feb. 21, at Van Andel Arena. The Wolves’ bid for their third consecutive win at The Van begins at 6 p.m. and will be streamed on AHLLive.com.
