Huxley returns for fifth season with Wranglers

Las Vegas – The
Las Vegas Wranglers announced Wednesday that left wing Adam Huxley has agreed to terms with the team for the 2013-14 season. Huxley will also act as a player-assistant coach to Wranglers Head Coach and General Manager Mike Madill.

Huxley, 29, has spent nine seasons in the ECHL, and four of them with the Wranglers. Since first lacing up for Las Vegas in 2004-05, the left wing has picked up 18 goals, 17 assists and 709 penalty minutes. A Wranglers fan favorite known for his fighting prowess, Huxley spent 294 minutes in the box his first year, earning him the club record for most penalty minutes in a season. His 709 penalty minutes set a new club record for all-time Wranglers penalty minutes last year, and he was second only to the Stockton Thunder’s Garet Hunt for most penalty minutes in the ECHL in 2012-13. In his ECHL career, Huxley has 1,876 penalty minutes, which ranks sixth in ECHL history.

A native of Wainwright, Alberta, Huxley brings 31 games of American Hockey League experience to the Wranglers. In stints with the Springfield Falcons, Chicago Wolves, and Bridgeport Sound Tigers, he posted one assist and 86 penalty minutes.
