Glens Falls, NY – The Adirondack Thunder, proud ECHL affiliate of the New Jersey Devils, announced today that it has signed defenseman Desmond Bergin to a standard player contract for the 2018-2019 season. 
 
Bergin, 25, returns to the Thunder after posting 43 points (15-28-43) for Adirondack last year, his second season as a professional. The 5-foot-11 defenseman added seven points (1-6-7) in the Kelly Cup Playoffs, including the game-winning goal in the Thunder’s Game 6 North Division Semifinals series-clinching win in Worcester. 
 
Bergin was originally acquired by the Thunder prior to last season via a trade with the Quad City Mallards after he had skated his rookie season for Greenville in 2016-2017. With the Swamp Rabbits, the smooth-skating defenseman recorded 26 points (7-19-26) from 60 games played and finished with a +10 rating. 
 
The 25-year old has also seen action in the American Hockey League, earning two call-ups to Hartford and skating in a pair of games for the Wolf Pack last year.
