Wolf Pack Sign Physical WHL Defenseman

Wolf Pack general manager Jim Schoenfeld announced today (Wednesday, June 10th) that the team has signed defenseman Mike Berube to an American Hockey League contract.

A 6-1, 215-pound native of Edmonton, Alberta, the 21-year-old Berube skated in 56 games this past season for the Western Hockey League’s Vancouver Giants, notching four goals and 20 assists for 24 points and serving 55 minutes in penalties. He was also a +33 on the year. In 17 postseason contests for the Giants, Berube contributed one assist and had 16 PIM.

Berube totaled 317 career games over five WHL seasons, with Prince George, Red Deer and Vancouver. His career numbers include 15 goals and 63 assists for 78 points, along with 333 penalty minutes.

From the sound of things Berube likes to drop the gloves (always puts a player in my good books). I found a few videos on YouTube of Berube showing his pugilistic skills :)
