BTW I think the Jets will also sign Sol
. I think Will O'Neill has also developed quiet nicely and has a real chance to be signed. If we have too many d-men in St.John's then we either trade 1 or send 1 down to the ECHL, like we did Chiarot.
Don't need to.
He's already signed an ELC for 578,333 per.
Melchiori is pretty interesting as he was pegged as a possible offensive defenseman when he was drafted, but in Kitchener he was looked at for defensive responsibility, which he brought. Now on the generals he's being looked on to bring some offense and is getting some good PP time and has so far been using it effectively. I'm hoping they each can crack the SJ's lineup next year.
