Funk is a 6'4" defender who was a #2 pick of Buffalo in 2004. Local guy, is an excellent skater for his size and got into a few games for the Sabres a couple years back. Had all kinds of concussion problems last season and wasn't qualified. Needs to be more physical for his size.
Glass is a 4th line/agitator type who played in 41 games for Florida in 07-08. Has very little skill but skates OK and throws his weight around and will fight (although loses most of his scraps). 4th line insurance, will play in Manitoba.
Desbiens is a Moose reclamation project who had an excellent year in the AHL last year with 21 goals/47 points and 158 PIM. Skates pretty well, physical guy who might develop into a solid 3rd/4th liner in the NHL.
Good to finally get Desbiens signed and 'officially' into our prospect pool.
