The Daily Courier

The Arizona Sundogs added the first defenseman to its 2012-13 roster Monday, signing rookie Zack Firlotte of Dalhousie University in Canada.

Last year, the 26-year-old tallied two points and 62 penalty minutes in 26 games for Dalhousie. Prior to that, Firlotte played for Acadia University, which is also a member of the Atlantic University Sport conference, for four seasons. He collected 22 points and 142 career penalty minutes. In 2009 he was named the Atlantic's Defensive Player of the Year.

"I am very excited and grateful for this opportunity," said Firlotte, who is 6 feet 2 inches tall and 210 pounds. "I'm excited to play with a team that has won a championship in the CHL".

Prior to his collegiate hockey career, Firlotte played two seasons in the Quebec Major Junior League (QMJHL), first with the St. John's Fog Devils for a single season before being traded to the Acadie-Bathurst Titans. During his time in Juniors he had 56 points (12 goals and 44 assists) and 273 penalty minutes in 129 games.

Firlotte is the fourth player signed by the Sundogs this offseason. The rookie joins forwards Jeff Kyrzakos, Mickael Bedard and Adam Smyth, the team's lone returning player from a year ago.

Arizona begins its seventh CHL season in October.
