Boise, ID (9/23/14) – Head Coach and Director of Hockey Operations Brad Ralph announced Tuesday that the ECHL’s Idaho Steelheads have agreed to terms with forward James Livingston.
The 24-year-old Livingston has appeared in 202 pro hockey games, all of them in the American Hockey League for the Worcester Sharks and Manchester Monarchs. Between the Sharks and Monarchs last season, Livingston totaled a career-best eight goals and 23 points in 67 games. He spent the end of last season in Manchester as a teammate of Steve Quailer, who agreed to terms with Idaho last week. Livingston was also a third-round draft pick of the NHL’s St. Louis Blues in 2008.
Ralph on Livingston: “James is a solid, two-way player who plays the game the right way. He’ll add offense and grit to our lineup along with leadership qualities.”
Livingston is the seventh member of Ralph's current training-camp roster with AHL playing experience - the AHL is the highest level of minor-league hockey in North America: Livingston, Quailer, Wade MacLeod, Gaelan Patterson, David deKastrozza, Patrick Cullity and Matt Case.
