McMullan re-signs with Nailers

WHEELING, W.Va. - The Wheeling Nailers, ECHL affiliate of the Pittsburgh Penguins, announced the club has re-signed defenseman Ross McMullan for the 2017-18 season.

McMullan, 25, returns for his second professional season, after appearing in 46 games with the Nailers as a rookie. He went on to register nine points (3g-6a), 42 penalty minutes and a +4 rating, which was tied for second among Nailers' defensemen.

For his efforts around the Ohio Valley last season, Ross earned the McDonald's Community Award. His greatest contribution came in March, when teammates shaved his head for the St. Baldrick's Foundation as part of Nailers Fight Cancer Month.

Prior to turning pro, the Las Vegas native attended St. Lawrence University, where he majored in Economics and Spanish. During his time with the Saints, he played in 38 games, notching four points (1g-3a).
