Former Bobcat forwards Jeremy Langlois and Ben Arnt have signed professional contracts.
Langlois signed with the Springfield Falcons, the AHL affiliate of the Columbus Blue Jackets. His contract is for one year, but the amount of money is unknown. Ben Arnt will play overseas with Lillehammer of Norway’s Elite Hockey League. The terms of his contract are not known.
Langlois led the Bobcats in points last season with 31, scoring 13 goals with 18 assists in 42 games. His 18 assists were the most on the team.
Arnt played in all 43 of the Bobcats’ games last season, scoring eight goals with 12 assists. His new home, Norway’s Elite Hockey League, is comprised of 10 teams. Each team plays every other team five times a season, adding up to a 45-game season.
While both men are heading to new locations they will both run into familiar faces. Langlois will cross paths with former Quinnipiac defenseman Mike Dalhuisen. Earlier this year Dalhuisen signed a contract with the New York Islanders and was assigned to their AHL affiliate, the Bridgeport Sound Tigers.
Arnt will find a familiar face in Norway as well. Lillehammer’s head coach is Kevin Hartzell, the father of former Quinnipiac goalie Eric Hartzell.
