The hard work has paid off for Eric Kattelus, as he has re-signed an AHL deal with the Chicago Wolves.
After four seasons at Michigan Tech in the NCAA, where Kattelus put up 32 points (6-26) in 87 career games, the Houghton, Mich., native signed a deal with the ECHL’s Cincinnati Cyclones. In 25 games with the Cyclones, Kattelus was able to muster seven points (1-6). From Cincinnati, Kattelus would head to Kalamazoo, and in his second season with the ECHL’s Wings he put up 32 points in 34 games and got the call to come to the AHL.
After signing a deal with the Wolves for last season, the team decided to extend his contract after he posted 3 goals and 10 assists in 39 games. While filling a bottom-six role, the 26-year-old has shown that he is willing to do what it takes to make it to the next level, and it’s pleasing to see the Wolves show faith in Kattelus’ ability with a one-year extension.
