Harstad returns to Steelheads

Rapid City, SD (3/3/17) –Steelheads Head Coach and Director of Hockey Operations Neil Graham announced on Friday that defenseman Aaron Harstad has returned to the Steelheads, after the defenseman was released from his professional tryout agreement (PTO) with the American Hockey League’s Texas Stars earlier in the day. Harstad will be available for the Steelheads’ contest with the Rapid City Rush on Friday night.

Harstad, 24, was signed to his PTO with Texas on February 19th and appeared in two games for the Stars, recording no points.

The Steelheads acquired the 2011 Winnipeg Jets draft pick on February 8th in a trade with the Norfolk Admirals, with Harstad skating in four games for the Steelheads and posting a goal and two assists to go along with a plus-5 rating.  In 37 games this season with the Admirals and Steelheads, Harstad has three goals and 15 points
