The Manitoba Moose have signed forward Nathan Todd to a one-year standard American Hockey League contract for the upcoming 2020-21 season. As per AHL policy, financial terms of the deal were not disclosed to the public.
Todd, 24, skated in 20 AHL games last season between both the Moose and the Belleville Senators in 2019-20, picking up a goal and a minor penalty. Much like the past two seasons, the 6-foot-1, 200-pound centreman also played in the ECHL with the Brampton Beast.
The ECHL has been where Todd has been much more comfortable, producing 49 goals and 106 points in 131 career games, including a stat line of 11 goals, 31 points and 34 penalty minutes with the Beast in 2019-20. The Kemptville, ON. product played his junior career with the Ottawa 67’s, where he put up 97 points (36G, 61A) in 116 OHL games.
Also this past week, AHL President and CEO Scott Howson announced that the 2020-21 season would be pushed back to feature a December 4, 2020 start date to the season. This decision came following months of conversation surrounding the growing concerns with regular sporting league play during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The 2019-20 season was earlier put on hold, before the league announced a full cancellation of the season and Calder Cup Playoffs as the threat of the virus grew weekly. More information regarding the upcoming 2020-21 season is expected for each of the 31 member clubs.
