Valleau returns from AHL Utica

ORLANDO, Fla. – The Orlando Solar Bears have announced that defenseman Nolan Valleau has been released from his Professional Try-Out Agreement with the Utica Comets of the American Hockey League and has been added to the team’s playoff roster.

Valleau, 25, led Orlando’s defensive corps in scoring during the regular season with 34 points (8g-26a) and 12 penalty minutes in 41 games; his 0.83 average points per game was the highest recorded by a Solar Bears defenseman in a single season. In January, Valleau represented the Solar Bears organization at the 2018 CCM/ECHL All-Star Classic in Indianapolis. The third-year pro also received try-outs with the Milwaukee Admirals, Rockford IceHogs, Chicago Wolves and Toronto Marlies, appearing in 16 total AHL contests, logging four penalty minutes.
