GREENVILLE, S.C. – The Greenville Swamp Rabbits, ECHL affiliate of the Los Angeles Kings, announced that the club has re-signed defenseman Joe Leahy and forward Colton Young to contracts for the 2023-24 season. Leahy, 26, returns to the Swamp Rabbits for his first full season after appearing in 10 regular-season games during the 2022-23 season. Over his short debut stint, Leahy recorded four assists. In the 2023 Kelly Cup Playoffs, he skated in six games and recorded his first professional goal against the Jacksonville Icemen in the opening round. A native of Waterloo, Ontario, Leahy joined the professional ranks after two seasons for the Vermont Catamounts, where he made 52 appearances and posted 13 points (3g-10a).
