ECHL: Trois-Rivieres Lions Re-Sign Kirby Proctor

Wyatt Nash/InsideTheRink

The Trois-Rivieres Lions have re-signed defenceman Kirby Proctor to an ECHL contract for the 2024-25 season. Proctor was one of the late signing by the Lions signing with the team on April 5th as he would play in three games with the Lions at the end of the regular season and then would make the Lions Kelly Cup Playoff Roster and would play in all six of the Kelly Cup Playoff Games for the Lions, the 23-year-old blueliner is still looking for his first professional point. Prior to joining the Lions, the 23-year-old spent a year in the USHL with the Des Moine Buccanners where he would put up one goal and 17 assists for 18 points in 60 games before making the jump to the NCAA Level. In five seasons at the University of Nebrask-Omaha, Proctor would put up 17 goals and 34 assists for 51 points in 172 games with the Mavericks.

For the Lions, this is a solid signing as Proctor is a young defensemen with a lot of upside for the Lions. He’s already gotten a taste of both regular season and Kelly Cup Playoff expierence in the ECHL and has shown that he has an offensive game as well that he has yet to display in the E but he led the Mavericks in scoring in his final year with seven goals in 40 games. I would expect the Lions to have a young core on their blueline heading into next season and for Proctor to play some big minutes for the Lions.
