Saginaw's Walch signs with CHL's Mavs

Just days after seeing his career in the Ontario Hockey League draw to a close, former Saginaw Spirit defenseman Brad Walch is about to embark on his first days in the professional ranks.

The Saginaw native will make his debut with the Missouri Mavericks of the Central Hockey League when they resume their Turner Conference Final against the Fort Wayne Komets on Wednesday. The Mavericks currently lead the series 2-0 with the next three games being on home ice.

Walch graduates from the Spirit having played the second most regular season games in franchise history with 265, and if you factor in his 38 playoff appearances, no player has suited up for more games. Walch is coming off a very solid playoff performance, recording a goal and adding nine assists to go along with a plus-four rating in 12 games.

Overall in his career in Saginaw in regular season play, Walch recorded 10 goals to go along with 56 assists for 66 points.
