RoadRunners Acquire Burke From Mississippi

PHOENIX – The Phoenix RoadRunners announced that they have acquired rookie defenseman Matt Burke and future considerations from the Mississippi Sea Wolves in exchange for forward Mathieu Melanson.

Phoenix also announced that they have agreed to terms with Burke, who was claimed off waivers by Mississippi in April but did not report to the Sea Wolves.

The RoadRunners are the ECHL affiliate of the San Jose Sharks of the National Hockey League and the Worcester Sharks of the American Hockey League.

The 23-year-old Burke signed with Phoenix after completing his career at Holy Cross University and had four penalty minutes in eight games with the RoadRunners.
