US College Signings

Being signed out of Minnesota/Duluth, forward MacGregor Sharp, has signed with the Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday. Sharp's deal is a 2-year entry level deal and he'll look to make a splash at Ducks training camp in September.

The Flyers now have one of their prized blue-chips under contract, as James Van Riemsdyk signed a 3-year entry level deal on Wednesday, getting himself ready to start his pro career after a great college career. Van Riemsdyk also signed a tryout deal, which will see him join the Philadelphia Phantoms of the AHL for the remainder of the season and the AHL playoffs, so the Flyers can keep a close eye on him. Van Riemsdyk was taken 2nd overall in 2007, just behind Patrick Kane. He will be one to watch out for in camp this year.

Signing and joining the Maple Leafs this week was Christian Hanson, a big power forward, signed out of Notre Dame in the NCAA. Hanson, a 6'4" forward, signed a 2-year entry-level deal and he'll be joining the Leafs line-up on Friday night, as they take on the Flyers in Philadelphia. So, have a good look at this kid, if you get the game and see if you want to have him on your pool list next year.
