The first signing of the Neil Graham era in Idaho was announced Wednesday and true to his form as assistant coach, this one focused on the blueline.
Corbin Baldwin, who spent time in the American Hockey League with the Iowa Wild last season, has signed to play in Idaho for the coming season.
The 24-year-old defenseman has played in 180 games since turning pro in 2012 — with close to half of them coming in the AHL. Between the AHL and the ECHL, Baldwin has 273 penalty minutes and 30 fighting majors. Baldwin is the third defenseman to be added to Idaho’s training-camp roster, joining Jake Rutt and Daniel Johnston.
Here are Baldwin’s stats from Elite Prospects:
With the addition of Baldwin, the Steelheads now have six players announced for their training camp roster.
