MANCHESTER, N.H. - Manchester Monarchs Head Coach and Director of Hockey Operations, Rich Seeley, announced today Yann Sauvé has signed a Standard Player Contract with the team.

The Monarchs are the ECHL affiliate of the National Hockey League’s Los Angeles Kings and the American Hockey League’s Ontario Reign.

Sauvé, 26, returns to the Monarchs after playing 25 games this season with Medvescak Zagreb of the KHL where he scored three points on two goals and one assist and accumulated 61 penalty minutes.

The 6-foot-3, 212-pound native of Montréal, Quebec, played 52 games with the Monarchs during the 2015-16 season after being assigned to Manchester by the Portland Pirates on Nov. 11, 2015. With the Monarchs, Sauvé scored 29 points on seven goals and 22 assists.
