Matt Lane signs AHL contract with Rochester Americans

BU assistant captain Matt Lane has signed an AHL contract with the Rochester Americans for the 2016-17 season, the team announced Wednesday morning.

Lane, an undrafted free agent, becomes the third Terrier since the end of the season to sign a professional contract.

During his senior campaign at BU, Lane finished fourth on the team in points (28), recording 14 goals and 14 assists, both career highs. Lane finished his BU career with 69 points and 33 goals.

A native of Rochester, New York, Lane is now the third BU player to join the Americans within the last year, as former forwards Evan Rodrigues and Cason Hohmann have both spent time with the Buffalo Sabres’ affiliate this season.
