The Checkers have brought a pair of skaters back into the fold, re-signing defenseman Josiah Didier and forward Nick Schilkey to one-way AHL contracts.
Didier was one of the biggest surprises on last season’s squad, starting in the ECHL before being recalled and sticking with the Checkers. The 25-year-old blue liner appeared in 54 games for Charlotte and set career highs in goals (4), points (9), penalty minutes (79) and plus-minus (+10).
Didier is heading into his fourth full pro season with 23 points (6g, 17a) in 154 AHL games with Hamilton, St. John’s and Charlotte under his belt, as well as nine points (4g, 5a) in 17 career ECHL games with Brampton and Florida.
After signing an AHL deal last summer, Schilkey spent the entirety of his rookie campaign with the Checkers. The 24-year-old forward suited up for 48 contests and logged 12 points (5g, 7a) along the way.
