Greenville, SC—Yesterday evening, the Fort Wayne Komets had traded rookie forward Benito Posa to the Swamp Rabbits in exchange for cash. Posa, 25, has had a career in the juniors and college hockey setting. Before playing three games for the Komets, tallying up no points, Posa played four seasons for NCAA Lake Superior. His last season was short-lived, like his time in Fort Wayne, as he played just four games with no points. The season before that, however, he played 27 games and tallied six points from three goals and assists (22-23 season). In the 2021-22 season, Posa played 26 games and earned 11 points from five goals and six assists. And for his final season (2020-21), he played 20 games and collected four goals and five assists. Before his NCAA debut, Posa played six seasons for three different teams in the USHL; in total, he tallied up 44 points from 134 games played. His last season was with the Des Moines Buccaneers, as he played 14 games and posted three goals and one assist.
It is unclear when Posa will make his Swamp Rabbits debut, but the team will play three straight games starting this Friday (February 2, 2024) against three different teams.
