While NHL contracts are being extended past the typical July 1 first end date as the 2019-20 season may be extended, players on AHL contracts have become free agents.

Two such players, Corey Schueneman and Samuel Vigneault have signed one-year, one-way AHL contracts with the Laval Rocket.

Schueneman, 24, is a defenceman and spent last season with the Stockton Heat and the Kansas City Mavericks. He played 44 games with the Heat, scoring three goals and adding 18 assists. In four ECHL games he had two goals and an assist. He is 6’0”, 200lbs and shoots left. He spent four years at Western Michigan University and is from Brighton, Michigan.

Vigneault is also 24 years old, and is a Baie Comeau, Quebec native. He is 6’5” and 203 lbs. After spending three years at Clarkson University, Vigneault played four seasons with the Cleveland Monsters. In 190 career AHL games, he scored 25 goals and 38 assists for 63 points. In 57 AHL games last season, he had 11 goals and five assists.

The pair joins Yannick Veilleux, Rafael Harvey-Pinard, and Liam Hawel who have already signed AHL contracts for the 2020-21 season.
