The Wheeling Nailers continue to load up their roster for the 2014-15 season, recently adding two more bodies to the mix in center Jarrett Burton and defenseman Brendan Rempel.
Burton, a 23-year old two-way center joined the Nailers at the conclusion of the 2013-14 season, after a four-year collegiate career at Clarkson University.
He didn’t see much ice time in Wheeling last season, but had a solid collegiate career. Burton scored 12 goals in 35 games as a junior, before scoring 11 goals and nine assists in 42 games as a senior in 2013-14.
The 23-year old Rempel is Wheeling’s first signing this offseason from outside the organization.
Known as a smart stay at home defensive defenseman, Rempel spent the 2013-14 season split between the Evansville IceMen, South Carolina Stingrays, and Las Vegas Wranglers, appearing in 47 total games with the three clubs, picking up one assist and 39 penalty minutes.
Prior to that Rempel played at Harvard where in 81 games he accumulated one goal, ten assists, 11 points, and 69 penalty minutes.
