After being assigned to the ECHL South Carolina Stingrays on October 11th, defenseman Tommy Cross has been reassigned to Providence. Since being assigned, Cross has skated in 22 games for the Stingrays leading the team in scoring with 17 points (6 goals, 11 assists).
Clearly the defenseman has been nothing short of an asset for the Stingrays so it makes sense that Providence would recall him in hopes of turning their losing record around.
Cross joined Providence at the end of their 2011-2012 season after graduating from Hockey East power house Boston College. He was Boston’s second round draft pick in the 2007 entry draft and was about of a Boston College team that won two NCAA championships.
I have gotten the opportunity to see Cross in action against my school UMass Amherst and I have nothing but compliments for the 23-year-old. Hopefully his addition to the Providence roster will help them gain some victories.
