On this good note, I hope everyone is self-quarantine, staying safe and healthy. We’ll get through this together, hopefully sooner than later.💪🌈 https://t.co/SgnvhmgfuQ

Duluth, GA – Gladiators forward Sam Asselin, has been named to the ECHL All-Rookie Team. With the honor, he becomes the ninth player in franchise history to receive the distinction and first since Sacha Guimond was named, after the 2012-13 season. The ECHL announcement of its All-Rookie Team for the 2019-20 season, is determined in a vote of ECHL coaches, broadcasters, media relations directors and local media, who were asked to select a goaltender, two defensemen and three forwards.
“It’s a huge honor to be named to the All-Rookie team. It was a good year both personally and collectively. It’s not the end everybody wanted and that’s disappointing, especially for us, we were getting hot and had higher and higher expectations. What is happening is bigger than sports and hopefully, everyone stays safe and healthy,” said Gladiators Rookie Forward Sam Asselin.
