Michigan outgoing senior forward Justin Selman has signed a two-year entry-level contract with the St. Louis Blues, the club announced today.
Originally from New Jersey, Selman put together a solid four-year career with the Wolverines, finishing with 67 career points. After starting his career battling for a spot in the line-up on Michigan's lower lines, the plurality of those points came this past season as a senior, when Selman featured on Michigan's second line and had a 13-18-31 scoring line in 38 games played.
As a pro, Selman likely projects as a depth prospect in the Blues organization. He'll provide a solid two-way game while chipping in the occasional offense thanks to his strong puck-handling ability.
Selman will report to the Blues AHL affiliate, the Chicago Wolves for the rest of this season. He is the second Wolverines senior to sign an NHL contract today, joining teammate and linemate Boo Nieves, who signed with the New York Rangers earlier today.
