Arizona has signed Conor Garland, it’s fifth-round pick in 2015, to a three-year, entry-level contract.
Garland, 19, has spent this year tearing apart the Quebec League. The Moncton forward has a staggering 21 goals and 80 points through just 33 games and is a whopping 22 points clear of the No. 2 scorer in the league, Sherbrook’s Guillaume Gauthier.
(Yes you read that right. Garland has 80 points in 33 games.)
A Massachusetts native, Garland is small — 5-foot-8, 163 pounds — but has an incredibly high skill level.
Last season, he set Moncton’s franchise record with 129 points in 67 games, then added another 25 in 16 playoff games.
