St. Cloud State junior forward David Eddy will forgo his senior season at SCSU after signing a two-year contract with the Calgary Flames on Tuesday.

Eddy will report to the Abbotsford Heat of the American Hockey League.

Eddy completed the 2011-12 season with nine goals and 25 points. He finishes his three-year career at SCSU with 30 goals and 35 assists in 92 games.

“We thank David for his contributions to our program over the past three seasons and we wish him the best of luck with his professional career,” SCSU coach Bob Motzko said in a statement.

“When we were informed that David had elected to forgo his senior season, we immediately informed his advisor that we wanted to make him a part of the Calgary Flames organization,” Calgary GM Jay Feaster said in a news release. “David is a hard worker who goes to the high traffic areas on the ice and plays the game with grit and passion. He is the type of player who agitates opponents by the way he battles and competes. He is very strong on his skates and tough to move from in front of the net. At the same time, he has good hands and vision and we like his offensive instincts.

“We are pleased he has chosen to start his professional career with our organization and we look forward to his continued development.”
