ROCKFORD, Ill. – The American Hockey League’s Rockford IceHogs today announced they have signed forward Nick Moutrey to a Professional Tryout (PTO) Agreement. In addition, Rockford has assigned forward Connor Moynihan to its ECHL affiliate, the Indy Fuel.
Moutrey, 23, has skated with the ECHL’s Manchester Monarchs this season, posting a point-per-game average with four goals and eight assists through 12 contests. The 6-3, 207-lbs forward currently leads the team in both points and assists, and has posted four multi-point efforts for Manchester.
The Shelburne, Ontario native has skated in the AHL for each of the last three seasons, logging a combined 39 points (19g, 20a) and 103 penalty minutes in 152 games. He made his AHL debut with the Lake Erie/Cleveland Monsters during the 2015-16 campaign and won Calder Cup that postseason after appearing in two playoff games. Moutrey then posted a career-high 17 points (8g, 8a) and 42 PIMs in 61 games with Cleveland during the 2016-17 campaign. Last year, the forward split the season between the Monsters and Belleville and collected five goals and six assists in 38 AHL contests.
Moynihan, 21, was recalled by Rockford on Nov. 7 and made his AHL debut on Nov. 9 at Milwaukee. The Windham, New Hampshire native totaled four PIMs over two games with the IceHogs, and now returns to Indy where he has posted five points (3g, 2a) and 11 PIMs in eight ECHL contests.
