NHL round 2 draft pick and Calder Cup champion, Jared Aulin is the latest player to be announced for Manchester Storm ahead of the 2019/20 season! The Alberta born forward joins Storm from Germany’s DEL, where he iced for Straubing Tigers.
The Colorado Avalanche drafted Aulin in round 2 of the 2000 NHL draft, but he was later picked up by the LA Kings 2002/03. The forward was traded to AHL team, Manchester Monarchs, claiming an impressive point per game (44 points in 44 games.) Previous AHL teams for Aulin also include: Portland Pirates, Hershey bears Springfield Falcons and Syracuse Crunch.
The 37-year old spent almost four seasons in Switzerland with SC Rapperswil-Jona Lakers. Whilst there, he totalled 149 points in 140 games and was instrumental in winning the Swiss Cup (2017/18).
The speedy forward spent four seasons with Örebro HK, between the Allsvenskan and the SHL. During his time with the club he claimed 159 points in 194 games and was named alternate captain during the 2013/14 season. Expect big things from this new signing, as Aulin joins the Storm with plenty of hockey experience, helping add depth to the roster. He is an experienced playmaker, who is dangerous on the powerplay. For those who didn’t know, the forward also happens to be recently signed, Layne Ulmer’s brother-in-law.
Head coach Ryan Finnerty is looking forward to having Aulin with the club, commenting:
“We are really excited to add a player of Aulin’s experience to our lineup. He’s capable of playing in the middle or wing, and gives our young team a veteran presence that I feel like we needed. Adding Ulmer and Aulin changes our dynamic for the better and we are fortunate to have them here in Manchester. “After losing Lundvald we had to act quickly”.
