Beavers sign defenseman

The Minot State University men’s club hockey team announced the signing of defenseman Eric Baldwin on Tuesday.

Baldwin, a native of Grosse Isle, Manitoba, tallied six points (one goal, five assists) in 2012-13 for the Virden Oil Capitals of the Manitoba Junior Hockey League.

“Eric is a great stay-at-home defenseman,” MSU coach Wade Regier said in a press release. “He has played three full seasons of junior A and will be able to make the great transition to the college game. He was a leader in the locker room in Virden and hope he can bring that leadership to the table with us in the future.”
