The Canadiens have agreed to terms with free agent forward Thomas Ebbing on a one-year, two-way (AHL/ECHL) contract for the 2017-18 season.
Ebbing, 22, recently completed his four years at Michigan State University, notching three goals and 13 assists in his final campaign. In 2015-16, his Junior year, the native of Troy, MI was named the Spartans’ Most Improved Player after a career-best 19-point season (5G, 14A). He also had the fourth-most blocked shots among all forwards nationally (59) and was third in faceoff wins in the Big Ten with 399. Ebbing finished his college career with 14 goals and 41 assists in 143 games.
Prior to joining Michigan State, the 5-foot-11, 172 lb. forward played one season with the USHL’s Chicago Steel, scoring 16 goals and adding 10 assists with 63 penalty minutes in 60 tilts.
