Defenseman Returns for his Third Season in Central Texas
CEDAR PARK, TX – The 2014 Calder Cup champion Texas Stars, American Hockey League affiliate of the NHL’s Dallas Stars, announced today that the club has signed defenseman William Wrenn to a standard AHL contract for the 2014-15 season.
Wrenn, 23, will begin his third campaign in a Stars sweater after appearing in 59 regular season contests over the past two years, tallying 14 points (four goals, 10 assists). The 6-foot-1, 210-pound defenseman also appeared in a pair of games during the opening round of the Calder Cup playoffs last year against the Oklahoma City Barons.
Wrenn (REHN) was originally a second-round pick of the San Jose Sharks (43rd overall) in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft and made his pro debut with the ECHL’s Alaska Aces during the 2012-13 season. The Anchorage, Alaska, native later signed with the Stars on a professional tryout contract and appeared in 19 games during the second half of the 2012-13 campaign.
Prior to turning pro, Wrenn was a member of the U.S. National Development Team program and won a gold medal at the 2009 IIHF U-18 World Championships. He then competed at the University of Denver (NCAA) from 2009-11 and also played two seasons of major junior hockey with the Portland Winterhawks of the Western Hockey League.
