Galvin the latest to sign with Muskegon

Defenseman Tom Galvin signed with the Muskegon Fury today, making him the 10th player inked to a deal for the upcoming season.

The 26-year-old Galvin is set to start his third pro season and his first full season in Muskegon after joining the Fury in a late-season trade one month prior to the end of last regular season.

“Tommy emerged not only as one of our top defensemen, but also one of our best players overall, especially during the playoffs," Muskegon coach Todd Nelson said. "He became a key player for us as he played a major role in every situation during the course of each game. He was stellar on the power play and outstanding in his penalty-killing work. Tommy is an outstanding skater who knows how to move the puck and gives our back line a lot of mobility. His mental toughness has shown, in particularly, when it comes to stepping up for the big games. In those big games, he was always there for us.”

Galvin arrived in Muskegon last March from Quad City. The Fury also acquired rookie right wing Anthony Blumer from the Mallards in exchange for defenseman Steve O’Rourke and right wing Jeff Petruic.

In 77 games last season between the Fury and Mallards, Galvin tallied 31 points on five goals and 26 assists.
