Sacha Guimond(39) Gwinnett Gladiators

Undrafted rookie defenseman Sacha Guimond(39) received two AHL call-ups from ECHL teams (so far) this season for a total of 6 games; first a pair with Worcester Sharks and later he joined Norfolk Admirals in four appearances.

He failed to put up any points but at least for the Admirals he was pressed into all types of situations and looked pretty effective and comfortable in a 2-1 overtime loss we saw.

The 6’2″ 185 lbs. blue liner did go a +1 plus/minus. The team had a 3-0 record and shootout loss with him in the lineup and he seemed to fit in with the team mix pretty well. Maybe no room for him on their roster now, so he returned to Gwinnett Gladiators, where he’s a point per game d-man with 5 goals and 13 assists in 18 games.

His first year pro numbers with San Francisco Bulls, where he started 2012/2013 were also good. In 33 games he put up 7 goals and 18 assists. He also currently leads all defensemen in league scoring by a considerable margin.

The soon-to-be 23-year old should at the very least be invited to an AHL camp next season, where he could easily stick and continue his upward progress.
