Acquired: Trade with Johnstown Tomahawks
Josh Biasillo was acquired in a trade with fellow North American Hockey League member, the Johnstown Tomahawks. Springfield was able to trade a 4th round draft pick to acquire a player with NAHL experience. In the 2016-17 season, Biasillo appeared in 56 games for Johnstown, contributing 6 goals and 9 assists.
Springfield Head Coach/GM Tyler Rennette had this to say about Biasillo, “Josh is a skilled veteran that will be great both on the ice and in the locker room. With his experience, he should be able to make an impact immediately for us.”
