Former Vernon Defenceman Erik Felde Signs With ECHL's Utah Grizzlies:

D Erik Felde has signed with the East Coast Hockey League's Utah Grizzlies after only playing five games in pro hockey last season.

I haven't been able to find out if the 24 year old was injured or taking a time-out from hockey in 2010-11, but the Grizzlies have added him as a free agent to bring depth to their blueline.

Multiple websites list Felde as a forward, but on the ECHL site, he's listed as a defenceman with the Grizzlies and was also a dman with Vernon during his BCHL days. In reality, Felde was a "rover" type of defenceman, who could join the rush and contribute offensively as well as any top line forward.
