Wilson, 29, brings considerable NHL experience with him having posted 51 points (20g, 31a) in 193 NHL games with Pittsburgh, Detroit and Buffalo over his seven pro seasons. The seventh-round pick by Pittsburgh in 2011 also has 109 points (56g, 53a) in 152 career AHL games with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, Rochester and Syracuse. Wilson, who won a Stanley Cup with Pittsburgh in 2017, recorded three points (1g, 2a) in eight games with the Crunch a season ago.

Zimmer, 23, is heading into his second pro season after logging 34 points (18g, 16a) in 56 ECHL games for Greenville last season. The 2016 fourth-round pick made his pro debut with the Checkers in 2019-20 after the conclusion of his four-year career at Wisconsin.

Fortier, 23, has recorded 10 points (3g, 7a) in 48 AHL games and 25 points (12g, 13a) in 24 ECHL games over his three seasons as a pro. The winger split last season between Austria’s top league and the UK’s EIHL.

Both Zimmer and Fortier are on ECHL contracts with the Greenville Swamp Rabbits for this coming season.
