KELLY SUMMERS RELEASED FROM PTO WITH BELLEVILLE

GLENS FALLS, NY – The Adirondack Thunder, proud ECHL affiliate of the New Jersey Devils, announced today that defenseman Kelly Summers has been released from his PTO with the American Hockey League’s Belleville Senators. He did not appear in any games with Belleville.    

Summers, 22, earned his first career AHL call-up after a tremendous rookie season with Adirondack. The blueliner accumulated 22 points (5g-17a) from 48 games played with the Thunder, including 10 points (3g-7a) in 17 games since returning from an injury that kept him out of the lineup for nearly two months. Summers has an additional eight points on the man advantage and his +13 rating leads Thunder defensemen.

The native of Golden Lake, ON joined the Thunder this season after spending four years at Clarkson University in Potsdam, NY. The 6-foot-1 defenseman tallied 71 total points (18g-53a) in 149 games over the course of his Golden Knights career. Summers led all Clarkson blueliners in scoring during his senior campaign with 30 points (6g-24a) from 40 games played.

Summers was a 7th round draft pick of the Ottawa Senators, No. 189 overall, in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft. 

The Thunder finish out their regular season with a matinee this afternoon against the Worcester Railers. With one point, Adirondack will clinch the No. 2 seed in the ECHL’s North Division. For the latest Thunder news, follow the team on all social media @ECHLThunder.
