Wyszomirski enters first full season with Monarchs

MANCHESTER, N.H. – Manchester Monarchs Head Coach and Director of Hockey Operations Rich Seeley announced the team has signed Craig Wyszomirski to a contract for the 2016-17 season.

The Monarchs are the ECHL affiliate of the National Hockey League’s Los Angeles Kings and the American Hockey League’s Ontario Reign.

With the Warriors, Wyszomirski recorded three points (2g-1a) during his junior season, and finished his time at Merrimack with five points (2g-3a) in 74 career games.

The native of Mahwah, N.J. skated in seven regular-season games with the Monarchs after the Merrimack season ended, and he also appeared in three Kelly Cup Playoff games for Manchester.

Wyszomirski began his collegiate career at Providence College and transferred after playing in four games during his freshman season. Before he made the move to Merrimack, Wyszomirski spent a season with the Surrey Eagles of the BCHL where he scored 36 points (8g-28a) while logging 78 penalty minutes in 54 games. Wyszomirski also added 10 points (3g-7a) in 17 playoff games that season.
