Lakers hockey forward signs NHL dealThursday, July 05, 2012 by: Brad Coccimiglio
Lake Superior State Lakers forward Kyle Jean will not be returning to the school to play hockey when the new school year opens.
Instead he’ll be preparing for his first training camp as a member of the New York Rangers.
Jean, who wrapped up his sophomore year at Lake State in the spring, was signed by the Rangers as a free agent after a solid showing at the teams recent development camp.
Jean finished second on the Lakers with 12 goals and had 24 points, good for fourth on the team, during the 2011-12 Central Collegiate Hockey Association season.
The Lakers also have five other players attending various National Hockey League development camps this summer including: Colin Campbell (Boston), Nick McParland (Chicago), Kevin Czuczman (Bufflao), Kellan Lain (Detroit and Nashville), and Buddy Robinson (Vancouver).
