ORLANDO, Fla. — The Orlando Solar Bears have announced the club has agreed to terms with forward Braydon Barker on a contract for the 2022-23 season. 

Barker played the entirety of his first professional season with the Solar Bears during the 2021-22 campaign. Initially signed by the team as a defenseman, Barker was converted to forward midway through the season, and finished his rookie year with eight points (3g-5a) in 50 games. 

Prior to turning pro, the 25-year-old played collegiate hockey for Concordia University Wisconsin, where he departed the Falcons program as the school’s all-time leading scorer with 92 points (16g-76a) in 93 career games. Barker’s 76 career assists are also a school record. Barker was twice named to the NCHA All-Conference Team (2017-18; 2020-21) and earned American Hockey Coaches Association All-American Second Team honors as a freshman. 

The native of Red Deer, Alberta also played Junior A hockey for the Olds Grizzlys of the Alberta Junior Hockey League, producing 20 points (6g-14a) in 83 career games.
