The Fargo Force have acquired forward Will Graber from the Muskegon Lumberjacks in trade for forward Charlie Gerard.
Graber, a forward out of Longmont, CO, has suited up in 42 games for Muskegon this season posting 20 total points with seven goals and 13 assists. The forward spent the last half of the 2013-14 season with the Sioux Falls Stampede and then the first 20 games of the 2014-15 season notching 10 points (4g, 6a) before heading to Muskegon to finish the season out where he played in 36 games tallying five assists. He is committed to Dartmouth College following his junior hockey career.
"We are excited to add Will Graber to our forward group,” said Force head coach Cary Eades. “I’m very familiar with Will, having coached him in Sioux Falls for parts of two seasons and also facing him in the Clark Cup Finals last May. He’s a big body center, has great reach, is good on face-offs and is equally effective in the defensive zone and offensive zone. He’s a good fit in our push for the playoffs.”
Graber will be eligible to join the Force roster for the next games this weekend at home February 26 & 27 versus the Lincoln Stars. He will wear jersey number 28.
