Wolves sign Sterling

The Chicago Wolves announced Thursday that the team has signed left wing Brett Sterling.

Sterling notched 62 points (30 goals, 32 assists) in 73 AHL games with Peoria and Portland in 2011-12, his fourth career 30-goal season in the AHL. He also skated in four NHL games with St. Louis last year.

A three-time AHL All-Star, Sterling has totaled 201 goals and 177 assists for 378 points in 392 AHL games over the last six seasons with Portland, Peoria, Wilkes-Barre/Scranton and Chicago. In his first stint with the Wolves (2006-10), Sterling appeared in 254 regular-season games and ranks third on Chicago’s all-time goal register with 144 markers and sixth on the franchise’s all-time points list with 263 points. He led the league with 55 goals and was named the AHL’s outstanding rookie in 2006-07, and helped the Wolves capture the Calder Cup in 2008.

Sterling, 28, has skated in 30 career NHL games with St. Louis, Pittsburgh and Atlanta, registering five goals and four assists.
