HERSHEY, PA — The Hershey Bears announced via press release today that they have signed forward Jeremy Langlois to a one-year deal. The contract is an AHL-only deal. Additionally, the club announced that they have released Matt Carey from his PTO. The Bears and Caps should know within the hour if Chandler Stephenson clears waivers as well. UPDATE – Stephenson did clear waivers.
Langlois, a native of Tempe, Arizona, stood out to head coach Troy Mann in his two preseason appearances, and scored one of Hershey’s five goals in their first game.
Previously, Langlois has appeared in games for five other AHL clubs: Rockford, Springfield, San Jose, Bridgeport, and Worcester. He has 38 goals and 40 assists recorded in 188 AHL games.
Carey’s release may have something to do with Stephenson’s potential return. Carey suited up for Hartford a season ago and has also played for Rockford and Iowa. Additionally, he appeared in two games for the Chicago Blackhawks during the 2013-2014 season where he recorded his first NHL goal.
If Stephenson clears waivers, he will most definitely be on the ice for the Bears Saturday night in Lehigh Valley for the season opener for both clubs. Look for a preview of the match-up tomorrow.
