Steelheads re-sign Jason Bast

Boise, Idaho – Head Coach and Director of Hockey Operations Brad Ralph announced that forward Jason Bast has agreed to terms with the Idaho Steelheads.

The Steelheads are the ECHL affiliate of the Dallas Stars of the National Hockey League and the Texas Stars of the American Hockey League.

Bast, 25, will officially be a rookie but appeared in 13 regular-season games with Idaho at the end of last season after concluding his college career at St. Francis Xavier University in Canada. In those 13 games, Bast collected 16 points (6g-10a), the second-most points among all ECHL rookies over that stretch of time. He also appeared in each of Idaho’s 11 playoff games.
