Forward Travis Novak has agreed to terms with the Toledo Walleye for the upcoming season.
Novak appeared in 65 games last season, scoring 11 goals with 23 assists. The 24-year-old picked up a pair of goals plus an assist in six playoff games. He finished fifth in scoring for the Walleye team and also collected two shorthanded goals.
“Travis has terrific motor and is one of the fastest skaters in the league,” said Nick Vitucci, Walleye head coach. “His skating alone changes how teams play against us on a nightly basis. He brings a scoring punch that we witnessed last year.”
Prior to turning professional, Novak appeared in 134 games with St. Cloud State. He collected 34 goals and 37 assists during his four year college career. The native of Lethbridge, Alberta was named to the WCHA All-Academic team multiple times and finished his college career with five game-winning goals.
