Former Charlottetown Islanders captain Jack Nevins was assigned Thursday to the American Hockey League’s Hamilton Bulldogs by the Montreal Canadiens.
Nevins, a 20-year-old from Stittsville, Ont., signed a three-year deal with the Canadiens on Dec. 3 while playing in Charlottetown.
The Bulldogs (32-34-1-6) host the Rochester Americans on Saturday, go to Lake Erie on Tuesday before ending the regular season by hosting the Syracuse Crunch on Saturday, April 19.
The six-foot-two, 205-pound Nevins’ junior career ended on Wednesday when the Baie-Comeau Drakkar swept the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies with a 4-2 victory.
The left-winger had five goals, three assists, 14 penalty minutes and was a +2 in nine playoff games for the Huskies.
The Islanders traded Nevins on Jan. 7, the final day of the trade period, for forward Julien Avon, a first-round pick (originally belonging to Blainville-Boisbriand) as well as Rouyn-Noranda’s third- and fifth-round picks. All the picks are in this year’s draft.
