Ross Rouleau signs with Kalamazoo

Former Brahmas defenseman will be a K-Wing

The Kalamazoo Wings (ECHL) have announced that former Texas Brahmas defenseman Ross Rouleau has signed with the club for the 2010-11 season.

After playing two years at Finlandia University, Rouleau joined the Brahmas after earning a training camp contract at the 2008 Making the Cut prospect camp. He saw action in 17 regular season and 15 post-season contests, helping the team win the Ray Miron President’s Cup Championship in 2009.

The 6’, 180-pound native of Hancock, Michigan had four goals and 14 assists in 60 regular season games and four assists in eight post-season games with the Brahmas last season.

“Ross plays a hard-nosed style of defense,” K-Wings head coach Nick Bootland said. “He’s not a big guy, but he’s certainly willing to get his nose dirty. He’s an up-and-coming young defenseman who possesses a heavy shot.”

The K-Wings open the season at the South Carolina Stingrays on October 16th and play their home opener against the Kelly Cup champion Cincinnati Cyclones on October 23rd.
