After enjoying the best season of his collegiate career, senior forward Eric Rex of the Canisius College hockey team is continuing his career with the Rio Grande Valley Killer Bees of the CHL.
During his senior campaign with the Golden Griffins, Rex set career highs with 27 points, nine goals and 18 assists. His 27 points ranked third on the team and were more than double his total from his first three seasons combined.
"We are excited to have Eric join our squad," said Killer Bees head coach Chris Brooks. "Depth is so critically important in the playoffs and I believe Eric brings that to our team."
In his four years at Canisius, Rex totaled 40 points, 14 goals and 26 assists in 103 career games.
Rex is the third Griff to join a professional team this offseason. He joins Cory Conacher and Vincent Scarsella, who signed with the Rochester Americans (AHL) and the Elmira Jackals (ECHL), respectively.
