Jake Newton(17) Gherdeina

Jake Newton2Undrafted 5th year defenseman Jake Newton(17) has played AHL games in each of his three seasons on this side of the pond.

The pretty sizable 6’3″ 200 lbs. offensive-minded blue liner had a real solid showing through 18 games (2 goals, 6 assists) with a very young Bridgeport Sound Tigers‘ team.

Once again though, he splits for Italy, moving it up a notch with Gherdeina of Italy’s top league Serie A.
