Belleville Senators Press Release
Senators sign Werek to an AHL deal
The Belleville Senators have signed forward Ethan Werek to an AHL deal for the rest of the 2017-18 season.
Werek, who was previously playing on a professional tryout, has been dominant for the Senators as he leads the team in scoring with seven points and is tied for first in goals with four while playing in seven games. His two power play goals are also a team high.
Werek, 26, has played in 337 career AHL games amassing 59 goals and 126 points. The Markham, Ont., native is a former second round pick of the New York Rangers (2009) but has yet to play in the NHL.
During the Senators’ historic first win in franchise history against Hershey, Werek became the first Senator to have a multi-goal game.
