St. John’s IceCaps Media Release

ST. JOHN’S, NL (December 6, 2015) – Montreal Canadiens and St. John’s IceCaps General Manager Marc Bergevin announced today the Canadiens have reassigned defenceman Dalton Thrower from the IceCaps to the Brampton Beast of the ECHL.

Thrower has registered eight penalty minutes in five games with the IceCaps so far this season and recorded an assist and 11 penalty minutes in two contests with the Beast.

The Squamish, B.C. native was drafted in the 2ndround (51st overall) by the Canadiens in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft. The 21-year-old, who signed a three-year entry level contract in May 2014, played his amateur hockey with the Western Hockey League’s Saskatoon Blades and Vancouver Giants. The six-foot-one, 203-pounder skated in 37 games with the Beast last season.
