LOVELAND, Colo. – One day after the start of their first ECHL preseason camp began, the Colorado Eagles announced that they’ve added another player to their camp roster, bringing the total of players skating at the Budweiser Events Center to 23. The Eagles have signed long-time ECHL and AHL forward Aaron Slattengren, a Colorado College alumnus.
Entering his sixth season of professional hockey, Slattengren has played in a total of 256 pro games, 149 in the ECHL and 107 in the AHL. In that time, the accomplished point-producer has accumulated 184 points (91g-93a) and 186 penalty minutes. The Duluth, Minn. native who now calls Arvada, Colo. home has registered nearly a point-per-game (.92) in his ECHL career.
Prior to turning pro, Slattengren spent four seasons at Colorado College in Colorado Springs, Colo. In 144 games with the Tigers, he put up 88 points (43g-45a). Before his time in Colorado, the left-handed shooting forward spent two seasons with the Omaha Lancers of the United States Hockey League. In 2000-01 he was part of the Lancers’ championship team, and in 2002-03 he led the team with 61 points (19g-42a) in 52 games.
