Saad finally signs with Saginaw

Though not officially announced by the Saginaw Spirit, the team has reportedly signed 2008 first round pick Brandon Saad.

In an article in the Saginaw News, Spirit coach-GM Todd Watson commented on the rugged forward who was the NAHL's top rookie in 2009 with the Mahoning Valley Phantoms and a member of the U.S. National Team Development Program last season.

"He's an all around player (and) he brings a lot to the table," said Watson. "He can play in all situations. He can score. He's a power forward. He can score goals, he has good hands, he can play physical, and will be a great asset to our program."
