For the first time in Oswego State history a member of the men’s ice hockey team has signed a professional contract with the National Hockey League (NHL).

Sophomore forward Eric Selleck signed a two-way, two-year contract with the Florida Panthers organization last Thursday, thus bringing his two year career with the Lakers to a close.

Selleck’s minor league contract with the Rochester Americans of the American Hockey League (AHL) is reportedly worth $105,000, while Selleck’s contract with the Florida Panthers is reportedly worth $1.175 million.
