ANCHORAGE, Alaska – The Alaska Aces, ECHL affiliate of the St. Louis Blues and Minnesota Wild of the National Hockey League, have agreed to terms with veteran defenseman Brad Cole and rookie defenseman Cam Harvey.

He suited up in all 18 Kelly Cup Playoff games, leading all Greenville defensemen in playoff assists (6) and posting a +4 rating.
