Robert Morris forward Brady Ferguson has signed an amateur tryout contract with the Toronto Marlies of the American Hockey League.
Ferguson, 23, finished his collegiate career over the weekend with 66 goals and 101 assists for 167 points in 152 games. He owns the Robert Morris career record for points scored and assists.
In the 2017-18 season, he led the Colonials with 49 points, 31 assists, 18 goals and nine power-play goals. The Colonials finished 18-20-3 and lost in the finals of the Atlantic Hockey tournament to Air Force.
In Ferguson’s for years with the Colonials, they won the Atlantic Hockey regular season twice and the Three Rivers Classic tournament twice. He was an all-AHC first team selection in both 2017 and 2018.
Ferguson, a Texas native, is the first member of Robert Morris’ graduating class to sign a pro contract. He attended development camp with the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2017. Before coming to Robert Morris, he played two seasons with the Amarillo Bulls of the NAHL.
The Marlies are the AHL affiliate of the Toronto Maple Leafs and their next game is March 23 against Belleville. The closest the Marlies will get to Pittsburgh during the regular season will be a trip to Rochester, N.Y. on April 7.
