Steelheads Resign Their Most Experienced Player From Last Season
The Idaho Steelheads have agreed to terms with forward Connor Chatham on an ECHL contract for the 2018-19 season.
Chatham, 22, returns to Boise for his third professional season, all played with the Steelheads. A third-round draft pick of the New Jersey Devils in 2014, Chatham set new personal bests in 2017-18 with 13 goals, 18 assists, and 31 points. The 22 year-old forward also appeared in 71 games last season and eleven playoff games, the most of any Steelhead.
The Belleville, Illinois native was the 2017-18 recipient of the Steelheads Hustle Award, a fixture on the penalty kill and nearly doubling his point production from the previous season. In 120 games with the Steelheads over the past two seasons, Chatham has totaled 19 goals and 47 points.
