JACKSONVILLE, FL – The Jacksonville Icemen, proud ECHL affiliate of the NHL’s Winnipeg Jets and AHL’s Manitoba Moose announced Thursday that the team has agreed to terms with forward Brendan Warren for the 2020-2021 season.
Warren, 23, returns after posting a balanced 28 points (14g, 14a) in 47 games played during his rookie campaign with the Icemen last season. Warren represented the Icemen at the 2020 ECHL All-Star Classic last January.
“Brendan is a hard-working player with great expectations,” said Icemen Head Coach Jason Christie. “He enjoys coming to the rink every single day and that passion showed last season. He is a tenacious player that has played with quality programs prior to joining out team.”
The 6-1, 191-pound winger collected 45 points (18g, 27a) in his four seasons at the University of Michigan from 2015-2019. Warren logged 32 points (13g, 19a) in his 53-game career in the USHL. The Carleton, MI native was selected by the Arizona Coyotes in the third-round of the 2015 NHL Entry Draft.
"I am happy to be coming back to Jacksonville for my second pro season and continue my development toward the NHL," said Warren. "I am excited to get going in the fall and play in front of the best fans in the ECHL again."
Warren becomes the first player to agree to terms with the Icemen for their 2020-21 All-Star season.
