Texas Stars Add Defenseman Nolan Gluchowski

The Texas Stars have added a rookie defenseman on an AHL deal this morning. Nolan Gluchowski comes to Texas from St. Lawrence University, where he played 133 games and was alternate captain last season. St. Lawrence has a pipeline to Texas over the past few years with alums Gavin Bayreuther, Eric Sweetman, Mike McKenna and Rich Peverley all around the team in the recent past.

Here's the release:
The Texas Stars, American Hockey League affiliate of the NHL’s Dallas Stars, announced Wednesday the team has signed rookie defenseman Nolan Gluchowski to an AHL contract for the upcoming 2018-19 season.

Gluchowski, 24, begins his professional career after a four-year stretch at St. Lawrence University from 2014-2018. The 6-foot, 196-pound blueliner appeared in 133 games in his career with the Saints and served as an alternate captain during his senior season. The Wixom, Mich. native recorded 71 points (16-55=71) in his time at St. Lawrence, including a career-high 20 points (2-18=20) in his final season.

Gluchowski also competed in the USHL for three seasons prior to college with the Tri-City Storm and Sioux Falls Stampede.
