Rassell recorded 50 points last season with the Fort Wayne Komet

BOISE, ID – The Idaho Steelheads (@Steelheads), proud ECHL (@ECHL) affiliate of the Dallas Stars (@DallasStars), and Steelheads Head Coach & Director of Hockey Operations Everett Sheen announced today that the club has signed forward Mark Rassell to an ECHL contract for the 2023-24 season.

Rassell, 26, enters his second professional season, first with Idaho, after tallying 50 points (21G, 29A) in 68 games with the Fort Wayne Komets while under an American Hockey League (AHL) contract with the Bakersfield Condors. The Calgary, AB native was named ECHL Rookie of the Month in December after recording 13 points (8G, 5A) in 13 games which featured four multi-point games including back-to-back three-point games on Dec. 18 vs. Indy (2-1-3) and Kalamazoo (2-1-3) on Dec. 22.

Before professional hockey, Rassell played three full seasons at the University of New Brunswick (USports) from 2018-22 where he accumulated 73 points (33G, 40A) in 72 career games. During the 2021-22 season he helped lead the Reds to the USports (AUS) Championship and in the 2018-19 campaign he also led the club to the USports (AUS) Championship as well as the USports University Cup Championship while being named to the USports All-Rookie Team. He played three full seasons in the Western Hockey League (WHL) from 2014-17 with the Medicine Hat Tigers where he compiled 181 points (103G, 78A) in 274 career games.
