The Bruins added to their reserves of small college free agent defensemen on Thursday, signing Jack Ahcan out of St. Cloud State.

Like Torey Krug, Ahcan is listed at 5 feet 8 inches and 185 pounds and was a point producer in college, recording 103 in 144 games (21 goals, 82 assists) over four seasons.

Also like Krug, his fellow Midwesterner, the son of Savage, Minn., was captain of his college team and went undrafted.

The Bruins did not immediately confirm the signing, but Ahcan posted a message on his Twitter account Thursday evening.

“I am humbled and excited to join the Boston Bruins organization,” he tweeted. “It is truly a dream come true for me and my family. When the time is right, I look forward to getting started with my new teammates. More importantly, please stay safe, stay healthy, and stay positive. See you soon #NHLBruins fans.”
