Devils sign defenseman Tyler Eckford
newjerseydevils.com – The Devils today signed defenseman Tyler Eckford to his first professional contract.  The announcement was made by Devils’ President/CEO/ General Manager Lou Lamoriello. 

Eckford, 22, was New Jersey’s fifth choice, and the 217th overall selection in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft.  The 6-3, 220-lb. defenseman spent the past three seasons at Alaska-Fairbanks (CCHA) where he compiled 16 goals and 55 assists for 71 points and 152 penalty minutes in 112 career appearances. 

During his just-completed junior season, Eckford became the first player in Nanook history named to the CCHA All-Conference First Team.  In recording 31 points this past season, he finished first among the school’s defensemen in scoring for the second time in three seasons. 

Eckford finished first among Alaska-Fairbanks’ defensemen/rookies with 18 points in 2005-06 when he was named to the CCHA All-Rookie Team.  Born September 8, 1985 in Vancouver, B.C., he played two seasons with South Surrey (BCHL) prior to his collegiate career.
