IceMen, Krug agree to terms

Evansville IceMen have agreed to terms with defenseman Matt Krug for the 2013-14 season.

The IceMen are the ECHL affiliate of the Columbus Blue Jackets of the National Hockey League and the Springfield Falcons of the American Hockey League.

The 5’11”, 210-pound Krug played in 25 games last season with the IceMen, contributing six points (2g-4a). Krug was initially acquired by Evansville in January in the midst of a mid-season depleting of the defensive corps due to injury. Prior to signing with the IceMen, Krug played for the Missouri Mavericks of the Central Hockey League where he appeared in 18 games during the 2012-13 season.

Krug’s previous ECHL experience includes a stint in 2009-10 with Pyle and his former team, the Gwinnett Gladiators. Krug has appeared in 139 career ECHL games with Evansville, Gwinnett, Elmira and Toledo, recording 38 points (5g-33a).

The Livonia, Mich. native played four years of college hockey, three with Wayne State University from 2005-08, appearing in 105 games and managing 34 points (10g-24a) and one season with Robert Morris University in 2008-09, where he appeared in 29 games, tallying nine points on (4g-5a).

In addition, Krug’s resume includes one appearance in the AHL with the Chicago Wolves during the 2010-11 campaign.
