The Manitoba Moose have signed four forwards and three defencemen to American Hockey League contracts.

Manitoba Moose Sign Seven

Included in the list of the seven signings are four returnees (Alexis D’Aoust, Kristian Reichel, Cole Maier, Jimmy Oligny) and three newcomers to the 2019-20 Manitoba Moose squad (Bobby Lynch, Graeme Craig, Hayden Shaw). These players are on AHL-only, one-year deals and would require an updated contract if Manitoba’s parent team, the Winnipeg Jets, requires their services at some point throughout the 2019-20 season, for whatever reason.
