KALAMAZOO, Mich. – The Kalamazoo Wings,  ECHL affiliate of the National Hockey League’s Columbus Blue Jackets, announced the team has re-signed forward Kyle Blaney and added goaltender Trevor Gorsuch for the 2021-22 season.

Blaney, 30, returns to Kalamazoo, where he has spent his entire professional career. The Burlington, Ontario native originally planned to play for the K-Wings in 2020-21, but took the year off when the team opted out. Through his first four years, Blaney has 147 points (38g-109a) in 214 career games. Statistically, he was on pace to set career highs in 2019-20 before the season was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Blaney finished with 37 points (11g-26a) in 45 games. Prior to turning pro, he spent three seasons at Ryerson University in Toronto.

Gorsuch, 27, went 4-3-1 in nine games split between the Utah Grizzlies and Fort Wayne Komets in 2020-21. The St. Charles, Missouri native enters his third pro season since finishing a four-year college career in Kalamazoo at Western Michigan University. He’s appeared in 15 ECHL games including five with the Toledo Walleye and one with the Reading Royals, posting a career record of 9-4-1, with a 2.54 goals-against average and .919 save percentage. Gorsuch appeared in 52 college games for the Broncos, going 25-16-3, including a career-best 19-11-1 record in 32 games as a senior in 2018-19.
