Men's ice hockey captain Jack Maclellan '12 signed a one-year entry-level contract with the Nashville Predators, according to a Predators press release Saturday. Maclellan is currently in Nashville practicing with the team.
The announcement comes after fellow seniors Bobby Farnham '12 and goaltender Mike Clemente '12 signed amateur tryout agreements with the Providence Bruins, the Boston Bruins' American Hockey League affiliate.
Maclellan tallied 30 points (15 goals, 15 assists) in the same number of games this season, making him the team leader. Throughout his collegiate career, Maclellan racked up 101 points, one of 23 players in Brown's history to score more than 100 points.
Maclellan is on the Hobey Baker Award watch list, an accolade he was in the running for last season as well. He is also a finalist for the 2012 Lowe's Senior CLASS Award.
Maclellan is the third Bear in three years to sign with an NHL club upon graduation. In 2010, Aaron Volpatti '10 signed with the Vancouver Canucks, and Harry Zolnierczyk '11 signed with the Philadelphia Flyers last year.
