Iacopelli returns to K-Wings

KALAMAZOO, Mich. – The Kalamazoo Wings, ECHL affiliate of the National Hockey League’s Vancouver Canucks, announced the return of forward Matheson Iacopelli, who signed a contract with the team ahead of his second season in Kalamazoo.

Iacopelli tallied 31 points (16g-15a) in 41 games in 2019-20 before an injury cut his season short. The Chicago Blackhawks drafted the Brownstown, Michigan native in the third round of the 2014 NHL Entry Draft and signed him to his first pro contract in 2016-17 after his sophomore seasons at Western Michigan University. Iacopelli spent his first two pro seasons in the Blackhawks organization, including time with the American Hockey League’s Rockford IceHogs, and ECHL’s Indy Fuel and Manchester Monarchs.

The 26-year-old has 157 games of pro experience, compiling 27 points (14g-13a) in 85 games with Rockford and 50 points (31g-19a) in 72 ECHL games.

Iacopelli totaled 43 points (21g-22a) in 67 college games over two seasons at WMU, including a productive sophomore season in 2016-17, where he posted 36 points (20g-16a) in 40 games.
