9th year left wing Garrett Klotz(19) has spent his last four seasons in the ECHL or one year in the similar level Central Hockey League with Allen Americans, where he won the league’s final Ray Miron’s Cup before dissolving.
Originally a Philadelphia Flyers‘ 3rd round pick in the 2007 draft (#66 overall), the first three seasons of his pro career were on an entry level deal before signing his first minor league contract in 2011/2012 with AHL affiliate Adirondack Phantoms.
The giant-sized forward inked a one-year deal with Elmira Jackals last season, appearing in only half the games, but still managed to get into a team high 13 fights.

Something must’ve registered in his head in a good way though, because for the first time in three pro seasons he found a bit of a goal scoring touch and ended up with 24 points (9 goals, 15 assists) in 49 games.
He’s never had much more than 5 points in any year.
We’ll see if he continues to contribute points along with the penalty minutes he racks up each season.
