Zaborsky gets AHL deal in Hartford
Saginaw Spirit forward Tomas Zaborsky has signed with the American Hockey League's Hartford Wolf Pack, the AHL affiliate of the New York Rangers.
Details of the signing were not disclosed.
Zaborsky left Saginaw to play with the Wolf Pack at the conclusion of the 2008 OHL playoffs.
Zaborsky, who was selected by the Rangers in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft, came to the Spirit via the 2006 CHL Import Draft. The 1987-born Trencin, Slovakia native wrapped up his second OHL season, compiling a career record of 50 goals and 63 assists, including 31 goals and 39 assists during the 2007-2008 regular season. Zaborsky tallied three goals and three assists in 10 post-season games, including two goals and an assist in four games during the 2008 post-season.
“Tomas had an outstanding year and was third in team scoring,” stated Spirit general manager Don Edwards. “He was also one of our best forwards in the post-season. The Spirit family wish this talented young man the best of luck in his pro career.”
