OILERS SIGN DEFENSEMAN BRAD HUNT

By Josh Evans, OKC Barons

The Edmonton Oilers, parent club of the Oklahoma City Barons, signed defenseman Brad Hunt to a two-way entry level contract.

Hunt, a 5-9, 188-pounder from Ridge Meadows, B.C. has played parts of the last two seasons with the Chicago Wolves. Last season, his first full season as a pro, Hunt scored 33 points (4-29-33) while appearing in 65 games. In all, he’s played in 79 professional games with the Wolves and scored 38 points (5-33-38).

Prior to turning pro, Hunt played four seasons at Bemidji State University. With the Beavers, he played 150 games and scored 112 points (24-88-112). Hunt did not miss a game during his four-year career in college and owns the Bemidji State record for power-play goals by a defenseman with 16 and served as alternate captain during his senior season. During each of his four seasons at Bemidji State, Hunt was the top-scoring defenseman and was among the top playmakers and point producers in each campaign.

Before his collegiate career, Hunt played two seasons with the Burnaby Express of the British Columbia Junior Hockey League. Over those two seasons, he collected 93 points (20-73-93) in 123 games.
