Defenseman Nick DeSimone re-signs a two-year, two-way deal worth $762.5K annually. The twenty-seven year old put together a solid season for the Stockton Heat in 2021-22, scoring four goals and 21 assists, to go along with a plus/minus rating of 10. In 13 playoff games, he scored two goals and three assists.
