This past week, Winnipeg product and former University of Manitoba Bisons star forward Kamerin Nault signed a fresh deal with the Atlanta Gladiators for the upcoming 2021-22 ECHL season.
Agreeing to terms for the coming year, the 25-year-old Nault will begin play on his third professional hockey season, albeit, the first full season following two COVID-shortened calendar years.
Last season, Nault split time between the American Hockey League’s local Manitoba Moose as well as the ECHL’s Greenville Swamp Rabbits and Kansas City Mavericks. The 6-foot-2, 200-pound winger put up three assists and eight penalty minutes between Greenville and Kansas City last season, while also appearing in three games with the Moose.
Following four seasons of Manitoba Junior Hockey League action with the Winnipeg Blues, to which Nault amassed 112 goals, 229 points and 237 combined penalty minutes in 242 total games, he moved on to the University of Manitoba Bisons, where he put up 16 goals, 26 points and 34 penalty minutes in 46 outings in the black, white and gold.
He joined the Manitoba Moose for one game on a loan following the conclusion of his U-Sports career in 2019, where he scored and added an assist with his hometown team. Producing at over a point-per-game rate with the Swamp Rabbits in 2018-19 led to his renewal with the team the following two seasons. He joined Kansas last year, and will move to Atlanta for 2021-22. In 73 total ECHL contests, the 25-year-old has 28 goals, 56 points and 26 penalty minutes.
