Pack signs Curran to AHL deal

Hartford Wolf Pack general manager Jim Schoenfeld announced Wednesday that the Wolf Pack has signed defenseman Kodie Curran to an American Hockey League contract.


Curran, a 6-2, 205-pound native of Calgary, Alta., joined the Wolf Pack last season at the conclusion of his career at the University of Calgary (Canada West University Athletic Association). The 25-year-old Curran skated in two games with the Pack, registering one assist and a plus-1. In University action with the Dinos, Curran led all CWUAA blueliners in points, goals and assists in 2014-15, with 8-16-24 in 23 games.
That performance earned him First-Team All-CIS (Canadian Interuniversity Sport) West honors for a second straight season, as Curran led all U. Calgary skaters in assists, and finished second on the team in points and third in goals. He also tied for fifth among all CIS (Canadian Interuniversity Sport) defensemen in points.
Curran enjoyed another CIS West First-Team All-Star season in 2013-14, notching four goals and 21 assists for 25 points in 23 games with the Dinos. Those numbers put him second among CWUAA defensemen in assists and third in points, and were good for eighth in point-scoring among CIS blueliners.
In 96 career games with U. Calgary over five seasons, Curran totaled 17 goals and 72 assists for 89 points, along with 115 penalty minutes.
