Combs back in Saginaw after pro camps

The Saginaw Spirit have announced the return of overage forward Jack Combs to the lineup.

Combs, a St. Louis native, was away at the respective rookie camps of the Colorado Avalanche and their minor league affiliates.

'It was a positive experience in camp," stated Combs. "I learned a lot and my goal is to bring that back to Saginaw in hopes of having another great year."

Combs is one of the highest scoring forwards to play for the Spirit in the team's seven-year history. Last season, he notched 42 goals and 58 assists for 100 points, setting a new single-season scoring record for the Spirit. Combs served as one of the team's leaders on and off the ice last season and his efforts were recognized when he was selected to represent the Spirit at the 2008 OHL All-Star Classic.

"We have a very hard-working team right now and I am excited to play with these guys," added Combs. "We have all molded and gelled really well and we are all looking forward to winning some games."
