West Valley City, Utah – Utah Grizzlies Head Coach/General Manager Tim Branham announced today that the team has signed goaltender Kevin Carr and defenseman Mitch Jones for the 2017-2018 season. Both players skated last season for the Alaska Aces.
Carr, 27, enters his fourth full professional season and has amassed a 69-60-9 ECHL record the last three seasons with Tulsa and Alaska where he’s averaged 23 wins each year. He’s played in 45 or more games each season as a pro. The Unionville, Ontario native played collegiately at Buffalo State.
“Kevin is a proven goalie in this league,” said Branham. “His ability to win games no matter what team is in front of him has been remarkable.”
Jones, 24, enters his third professional season after playing with Alaska the last two seasons. He played in his first professional game against the Grizzlies in Anchorage on December 31, 2015 and scored his first professional goal against Utah on January 2, 2016. His brother Max was selected in the first round and 24th overall by the Grizzlies NHL affiliate the Anaheim Ducks in 2016.
