The Colorado Eagles announced Monday that they have re-signed Arthur Bidwill for the 2014-15 season. Bidwill, a 5-foot-10, 185-pound defenseman recorded three goals and 14 assists in 67 games with the Eagles last season. He would also go on to add one assist in six post-season contests.
“Arthur Bidwill has made such huge strides in his overall play since he first arrived as a rookie two years ago,” said head coach and general manager Chris Stewart. “I know that he can still become an even better player on the ice and I believe that he will be a great asset for us this season.”
The Fontana, Wisc. native posted 25 points and registered a plus-minus rating of plus-10 in 69 games with the Eagles during his rookie season in 2012-13. That performance would earn him a spot in the Rockford Ice Hogs AHL training camp to begin the 2013-14 campaign, before eventually spending the remainder of the season in Colorado.
“It’s a great organization, so coming back was an easy decision,” said Bidwill. ”I think all of us who were here last year have a sour taste about how last season ended. We’re excited to come back this year and see it all the way through to a championship this time.”
Bidwill concluded a four-year career at Colorado College prior to joining the Eagles in 2012. During his time with the Tigers he registered 37 penalty minutes and three assists in 51 games.
