ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- The Providence Bruins of the American Hockey League announced today (Wednesday, April 4) that they have signed University of Michigan forward Luke Glendening (Grand Rapids, Mich.) to an amateur tryout contract for the remainder of the 2011-12 season.
Gledening recently completed his senior season with the Maize and Blue, tying a career high with 21 points (10 goals, 11 assists) in 41 games. His 10 goals and plus-18 rating also marked career bests for the 5-foot-11, 193-pound forward. Glendening was honored by the CCHA as the league's Best Defensive Forward and earned the Howard Colby Award (Sportsmanship) from the Michigan Hockey Dekers Blue Line Club.
In 165 career games as a Wolverine, Glendening recorded 70 points (31g, 39a) and a plus-57 rating. He also scored two shorthanded goals and five game-winning tallies.
Glendening served as the team captain for the second consecutive season in 2011-12. He is one of only eight players in U-M history to wear the "C" for multiple years and one of three Wolverines to wear a letter for three seasons.
