From our post-season recap:

He played in 69 of 72 games for Manitoba this season providing plenty of offence from the backend. He set career highs in games played, goals (12), assists (42) and points (54). He finished the season in first place in the AHL for points amongst blueliners. His play on the ice was recognized by the American Hockey League as he was named to the 2023-24 AHL First All-Star Team. Just five days later he became just the second ever Moose defender to have been voted the Eddie Shore Award winner as the AHL’s outstanding defenceman.

He is staying in the Central which means folks will see him plenty with either the Stars of the NHL or Stars of the AHL.
