GREENVILLE, S.C. — The Greenville Swamp Rabbits have announced that they have signed defenseman Jon Jutzi to a contract for the 2018–19 season.
Jutzi, a veteran of 95 ECHL games, and six games in the American Hockey League, adds an offensive element to the blue line. The Tavistock, Ontario native posted 14 points (2g-12a) in his debut season in Orlando, and added nine points (2g-7a) last season in Kalamazoo.
Prior to turning pro, Jutzi played four seasons at Minnesota State University-Mankato, and racked up 44 points in 144 games for the Mavericks. In his senior season, he served as an alternate captain for the team that went 21-13-7, posted a career-high 15 points, and helped lead the team to the WCHA Final Five. Twice, the Mavericks won the WCHA championship with him on the squad, and three times, he captured WCHA All-Academic honors.
