Houston, TX – Houston Aeros General Manager Jim Mill announced on Monday the team has signed defenseman Kane Lafranchise and forward Jamie Schaafsma, each to a professional tryout agreement (PTO).
Lafranchise made his AHL debut this season, going scoreless in nine games with the Oklahoma City Barons. He also has played in 32 games for the Alaska Aces of the ECHL this season, scoring four goals and adding 19 assists for 23 points. The 6-foot-1, 195-pound defender is in his third professional season, spending the bulk of it in Anchorage with the Aces. He also played collegiately at the University of Alaska-Anchorage from 2007-10.
