JAKE LINHART SIGNS WITH AHL'S HERSHEY BEARS

GLENS FALLS, NY – The Adirondack Thunder, proud ECHL affiliate of the New Jersey Devils, announced today that defenseman Jake Linhart has signed a professional try-out contract with the AHL’s Hershey Bears.

Linhart, 22, has appeared in all 19 Thunder contests this season accumulating two goals and nine assists. His 11 total points ranks in the top 10 among all ECHL defensemen while marking him third for rookie blueliners. 

The Brookfield, Wisconsin native signed with the Thunder after completing a four-year collegiate career at the University of Wisconsin. Linhart recorded 60 points (15g-45a) from 142 games as a Badger while leading all Wisconsin blueliners in scoring during his sophomore and junior seasons. 

Prior to playing collegiately, the 5-foot-11 defenseman skated a pair of seasons for the Green Bay Gamblers of the United States Hockey League. Linhart posted 27 points (3g-24a) in 116 regular season contests with the Gamblers, while recording an assist in an additional four postseason games. 

Adirondack is back in action for a pair of games this weekend starting tonight in Manchester to take on the Monarchs. The Thunder will then head home to face off with the Reading Royals tomorrow evening at Cool Insuring Arena starting at 7:00 p.m. For the latest Thunder news, be sure to follow the team on Facebook (www.facebook.com/ECHLThunder) and Twitter (www.twitter.com/ECHLThunder).
