Robert Morris senior forward Timmy Moore has become the fourth player to sign with a professional team following the end of the Colonials’ season last weekend.
Moore, 24, signed a professional contract with the Greenville Swamp Rabbits of the ECHL on Friday, joining teammates Spencer Dorowicz and Robert Powers, who had signed with the club earlier in the week.
A Grosse Pointe Park, Michigan native, Moore was the fourth-leading scorer on the Colonials in 2017-18. He had 13 goals and 23 assists for a career-high 36 points while playing in all 41 games. In his four-year Robert Morris career, Moore skated in 136 contests, scoring 36 goals and 40 assists for 76 points.
Moore got playing time as a young forward by contributing on the penalty kill and as a checking-line winger, but developed chemistry with the Colonials’ more offensive players and found himself playing in a much larger role by his senior year. Moore always displayed a willingness to go to tough areas of the ice, and he developed a good feel for the puck around the net.
Before coming to Robert Morris, Moore played for the Amarillo Bulls of the NAHL and the Pembroke Lumber Kings of the CCHL. His older brother, Evan Moore, also played at Robert Morris, and spent time professionally in the ECHL and SPHL.
The Swamp Rabbits are the Double-A affiliate of the New York Rangers and play in Greenville, South Carolina. They are currently in last place in the ECHL’s South Division. They host Jacksonville on Friday night.
Dorowicz, Moore and Powers are joined as 2018 Robert Morris alumni in the pro ranks by forward Brady Ferguson, who signed an amateur tryout with the Toronto Marlies of the AHL.
