The 5' 11", 200lb Springside, SASK native played the last two seasons in Hartford and recorded a combined 26 goals and 34 assists in 129 games along with a +18 for the Wolf Pack. At 29-years-old, he'll be adding some experience up the middle.
"All that hard work over my career, the 4 a.m. workouts all summer and then going to work 10-hours with my brothers construction company and hard work from my dad (Morlie), mom (Irene), sister (Jana) and brother (Dustin), for all the sacrifices they made growing up and throughout my career. It’s an accomplishment for all of us and I’m proud to say it was a family effort." ~ Nehring to Yorkton This Week 12/11/2014
I don't recall him playing much as Binghamton has limited action with Hartford during the regular season, but looks to have a strong work ethic and an equally strong family to back him up.
Welcome aboard Chad!
