Neil Petruic signs in Hamilton
The 6-foot-1 rearguard split last season between Binghamton (AHL), Manitoba (AHL) and Victoria (ECHL). In 42 AHL games in 2009-10, Petruic picked up two goals and four assists.
Drafted 235th overall by the Ottawa Senators in 2001, Petruic then went on to suit up for the University of Minnesota-Duluth Bulldogs for the next four years.
Since making the jump to the pro ranks in 2005, the Regina native has played 231 AHL games for the B-Sens and Moose, along with stints in Victoria, Charlotte and Stockton in the ECHL and a season patrolling the blue line for Bolzano in Italy.
