Although hockey leagues across the globe are either suspended indefinitely or cancelled all together due to the COVID-19 pandemic, that doesn’t stop teams from making transactions.
The Colorado Eagles announced on Wednesday that they’ve signed former Notre Dame forward Callahan Burke for the 2020-21 season.
Burke played four seasons for the Fighting Irish, amassing 36 goals and 88 points in 146 NCAA games. The 22-year-old forward also helped UND to back-to-back Big-10 Championships in 2018 and 2019.
Recently completing his senior season, Burke served as the team’s captain while recording seven goals and 21 points in 37 games. Prior to his time at Notre Dame, the 5-foot-10, 180 pound Burke spent two seasons in the USHL with the Cedar Rapids RoughRiders — also serving as a team captain there during the 2015-16 campaign. He collected 34 goals and 45 assists with the RoughRiders during his time there.
It’s also worth noting that Burke also played with Colorado Avalanche prospects Cam Morrison, Nick Leivermann and Nate Clurman during his time there.
