K-WINGS SIGN ALL-STAR FORWARD COLLIN ADAMS

KALAMAZOO, MI – The Kalamazoo Wings, proud ECHL affiliate of the National Hockey League’s Vancouver Canucks, announced Thursday that the team has signed forward Collin Adams to a Standard Player Contract for the 2023-24 season.

Last season, Adams was named to the ECHL All-Star team and notched 32 points (14g, 18a, 18 PIM) in 30 games played for the Worcester Railers. 

“Collin Adams is a Michigan kid, whose signing was a high priority for us in 2023-24,” said Joel Martin, Kalamazoo Wings Director of Hockey Operations and Head Coach. “He’s a speedy forward that helps bolster our offense.”

Adams, 25, is a 5-foot 9-inch, 198-pound, Brighton, Michigan native, heading into his third professional season. Over the past two seasons, the forward split time between Worcester (40gp, 17g, 22a, 25 PIM) and Bridgeport (AHL: 65gp, 8g, 10a, 18 PIM). 

“I’m super excited to be playing in Kalamazoo next season,” Adams said. “It’s special for me to play in my home state and be so close to family. I’ve already heard a lot about how passionate K-Wings fans are and it’s exciting to play in front of such a great fanbase.”

The left-handed shooting forward is a product of the Muskegon Lumberjacks (USHL / 2015-2017) and entered collegiate play scintillating (116gp, 51g, 61a, 109 PIM), along with earning a spot on the USHL All-Rookie Team with 61 points (27g, 34a, 37 PIM) during the 2015-16 campaign. 

Adams then played four seasons for the University of North Dakota (122gp, 33g, 44a, 56 PIM) from 2017-2021, before winning the 2021 NCAA (NCHA) Championship with Fighting Hawks in his senior season (29gp, 14g, 20a, 10 PIM). 

The K-Wings will continue rounding out their roster this summer ahead of Training Camp in October. Kalamazoo’s ‘Home Opener’ kicks off the 2023-24 regular season on Saturday, October 21 versus Toledo Walleye at 7:00 p.m. EST at Wings Event Center.
