Undrafted center Jeremy Welsh(15) has already been with his share of teams as he enters his third professional season.
An unrestricted free agent heading into 2014/2015, his former team Vancouver Canucks decided to not re-sign the fairly large 6’3″ 208 lbs. Ontario, Canada native.
He originally inked a 1-year entry level deal with Carolina Hurricanes and skated his first NHL game after winning an ECAC Championship at Union College in his third and final season before turning pro.
The physical presence up front split his time in his rookie year up with the big club on numerous recalls but mostly with affiliate Charlotte Checkers, where he notched some decent numbers (14+12-26 in 69 AHL games).
His potential abilities led him to receive a two-year extension with the 2nd year being a one-way contract.
He’ll easily be on the short list for a recall to prove his mettle once again but will need to show up big.
