Saginaw's Jarram signs with Rochester

Saginaw Spirit forward David Jarram has signed a contract with the American Hockey League's Rochester Americans, the AHL affiliate of the Florida Panthers.

Details of the signing were not disclosed.

Jarram arrived in Saginaw via a January trade with the Oshawa Generals (pictured).

The 1987-born native of Kitchener, Ontario, posted 14 goals and 15 assists in his five-year OHL career that saw stops in Sault Ste. Marie, Ottawa, London, Oshawa and Saginaw. He tallied 11 goals and seven assists during the 2007-2008 season, including five goals and two assists in 29 games with the Spirit.

“The Saginaw Spirit want to win OHL championships, but just as importantly, this organization strives to develop its players into future NHLers,” stated Spirit president and managing partner Craig Goslin. “The fact that he signed a pro contract immediately following the end of our season is a testament to the fact that the OHL is the top developmental program for the NHL.

"We are thrilled for David and wish him the best of luck. The entire Spirit family will be rooting for his continued success as he works toward the day when he skates with the NHL's Florida Panthers.”
