MANCHESTER, NH – Earlier this week, the Manchester Monarchs announced a trade sending forward Zac Lynch to the Wheeling Nailers.
Lynch, 26, played in 92 games for the Monarchs, including 58 during the 2017-’18 season.
A 2015- ‘16 Hobey Baker Award finalist at Robert Morris University, Lynch also appeared in 36 AHL contests for the Portland Pirates, Springfield Thunderbirds and Utica Comets after leaving college.
Last season, Lynch found himself playing mainly on the left wing, scoring 46 points, a 12-point increase from the previous season. However, he also saw a +/- regression (going from 16 to -9) as he almost doubled the number of games played.
In return, the Monarchs received a player to be named at a later date.
