GLENS FALLS, NY – The Adirondack Thunder, proud ECHL affiliate of the New Jersey Devils, announced today that defenseman Desmond Bergin has signed a professional try-out with the American Hockey League’s Providence Bruins.
Bergin, 25, is in his second year with Adirondack where he has accumulated 10 points (4g-6a) in 17 games so far this season. The Natick, MA native led all Thunder defensemen in scoring during the 2017-2018 campaign when he totaled 43 points (15g-28a) while adding an additional seven points in the 2018 Kelly Cup Playoffs.
This is the Harvard University product’s second try-out deal with the P-Bruins this season after appearing in two games during his first recall from November 16 – November 23. Bergin has additional experience at the AHL level as he was called up for a two-game stint with the Hartford Wolf Pack last season.
The Thunder hit the ice again for two games this weekend – in Manchester, NH Friday night and back home to take on the Reading Royals Saturday evening.
