The Colorado Avalanche Hockey Club announced today that the team has signed forward Josh Dickinson to a three-year, entry-level contract beginning with the 2018-19 season. The center will report to the San Antonio Rampage for the remainder of the 2017-18 campaign on an amateur tryout.
Dickinson, 20, spent the 2017-18 season with Clarkson University, where he collected 26 points (15g, 11a) in 40 games in his freshman campaign for the Golden Knights. His 15 goals ranked second on the team and he finished seventh in overall scoring and second among Clarkson's first-year players.
The 6-foot-2, 190-pound center played the previous three seasons with the Georgetown Raiders of the Ontario Junior Hockey League, accumulating 142 career points (56g, 86a) in 153 games and serving as an alternate captain in 2015-16 before being named the club's captain in 2016-17.
A Georgetown, Ontario, native, Dickinson notched 22 points (8g, 14a) in 22 playoff games last season, second on the team, to help the Raiders capture its first Buckland Cup as league champions. In 50 career postseason contests with Georgetown, he produced 36 points (16g, 20a).
