Sting resigns Hinman
The Arizona Sting announced the signing of defenseman Greg Hinman to a one-year contract, pending league approval. As per club policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
"Greg is a very hard-working young man and we're happy to be bringing him back to the Sting," said Sting coach-GM Bob Hamley. "He really impressed us last season with his speed, grit and determination, and we're looking forward to having him play a bigger role on our defense in 2007."
As a rookie in 2006, Hinman registered 1G-10A-11P in 13 games played with the Sting. The 23-year-old also scooped up 59 loose balls on the season and logged 18 PIM.
A standout defender with the Western Lacrosse Association's New Westminster Salmonbellies, Hinman has registered 15G-47A-62P-82PIM in 33 GP over the past two summers in British Columbia. Arizona originally signed the Coquitlam, British Columbia, native as a free agent on Oct. 3, 2005.
