ROCKFORD, Ill. -- The American Hockey League’s Rockford IceHogs today announced they have signed forward Hunter Fejes to a Professional Tryout (PTO) Agreement. In addition, the IceHogs have recalled forward Connor Moynihan from their ECHL affiliate, the Indy Fuel.
Fejes, 24, has skated with the Orlando Solar Bears in the ECHL this season, posting 14 points (8g, 6a) and 17 penalty minutes in 10 games. He leads the team and is tied for third in the ECHL in goals and shares seventh among all league skaters in total scoring. The 6-1, 192-lbs forward has also notched points in nine of his first 10 ECHL games this season, including four multi-point efforts.
The Anchorage, Alaska native spent the majority of the 2017-18 campaign in the ECHL and established career-high marks with his 30 goals and 59 points. He finished as one of only 16 skaters in the ECHL to reach the 30-goal plateau last season, and upon returning to the ECHL for the Kelly Cup Playoffs, he posted a point-per-game average with nine points (3g, 6a) in nine postseason contests with Orlando.
Fejes also skated in four AHL games with the Toronto Marlies last season after signing a PTO with the club on March 22.
Overall, the forward has logged 111 points (56g, 55a) in 125 career ECHL games with Rapid City (2016-17), Wheeling (2017-18) and Orlando (2017-18), and five points (1g, 4a) in 33 career AHL games with Springfield (2015-16), Tucson (2016-17) and Toronto (2017-18).
Fejes was originally selected by the Arizona Coyotes in the sixth round (178th overall) of the 2012 NHL Draft.
Moynihan, 21, made his professional debut with the Fuel this season and has tallied five points (3g, 2a) in eight ECHL games. The forward skated in his first pro game on Oct. 13 at Kalamazoo and posted his first multi-point effort with a goal and assist Nov. 3 at Wheeling.
Last year, the Windham, New Hampshire native skated with the Halifax Mooseheads in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL) and logged a career-high 42 points (21g, 21a) with 113 PIMs in 66 contests. Moynihan served as an alternate captain and ranked eighth overall in the league and third among QMJHL forwards in PIMs for the 2017-18 campaign.
Following the regular season, the forward native helped Halifax advanced to the second round of the playoffs by notching seven points (4g, 3a) and a team-high 22 penalty minutes in nine postseason contests.
Overall, Moynihan has totaled 133 points (68g, 65a) and 470 PIMs in 310 career QMJHL games from 2013-18.
