4th year defenseman Justin Hache(18) leaves for Metal Ligaen signing for 2017/2018 with SonderjyskE.

He’s set to become a restricted free agent with his three-year entry level deal expiring.

Originally an Arizona Coyotes‘ 7th round pick in the 2012 draft (#208 overall) he was traded late last season to Dallas Stars.

His first pair of seasons were played exclusively in the AHL, first with affiliates Portland Pirates, then Springfield Falcons.

The 6’2″ 203 lbs. d-man recorded only modest numbers as a rookie (6 assists) but took it up a bit grabbing 2 goals and 12 assists with a +5 rating as a sophomore skater on a non-playoff team.

This was more similar to his final year of juniors with Cape Breton Screaming Eagles, where he recorded 41 assists in 57 QMJHL games.

In his third campaign though, he started with 5 games for new farm club Tuscon Roadrunners but was too often a healthy scratch before he was reassigned down to Rapid City Rush of the ECHL previous to being dealt.

A similar situation occurred, when he started up new squad with Texas Stars but was dropped down to Idaho Steelheads as the calendar wound down and appeared in his first postseason match-ups.

The 23-year old should do very well in Denmark’s top league and will very likely play himself up the overseas hockey ladder.
