Case, 24, is a rookie out of Ferris State. In 38 games with the Gladiators, Case had one goal, two assists, and 14 penalty minutes.
The Minnesota native recorded 47 points in 144 career games at Ferris State, twice earning the school’s Competitive Blue Line award as the team’s top competitor.

After concluding his college season, Case played two games with the Norfolk Admirals before signing with Gwinnett in the offseason.
