The 24-year-old defenceman completed his NCAA college hockey career at Providence College last spring where he set career highs with six goals and 15 points in 39 games with the Friars. The former Manitoba Junior Hockey League player of the year and top defenceman in 2010 finished with 11 goals and 25 assists in 141 career NCAA games and went on to play three games of pro with the Fort Wayne Comets at the end of the season.

Nixon returns to ECHL

The 23-year-old centre racked up 98 goals and 213 points in 314 WHL games over five seasons with the Kamloops Blazers and Calgary Hitmen before moving on to a five-year CIS career with the Calgary Dinos, compiling 51 goals and 111 points in 141 games.
