Brandon Burlon signs with New Jersey Devils, leaves Michigan hockey program

By Staff

Defenseman Brandon Burlon will forgo his senior season with the Michigan hockey team after signing an entry-level contract Thursday with the New Jersey Devils.

Burlon, 21, had 18 points (five goals, 13 assists) last season and was part of the all-CCHA honorable mention team.

Burlon signed his deal three days after Louie Caporusso, who served as a captain his senior season with Michigan, signed a two-year entry-level deal with the Ottawa Senators.
