Two more Colgate hockey players signed pro deals on Friday.

Colgate senior forward Tim Harrison signed an amateur tryout contract with the ECHL’s Adirondack Thunder, affiliated with the NHL’s Calgary Flames. The Flames drafted Harrison in the sixth round of the 2013 NHL draft.

Harrison scored 11 goals over the course of the season and added nine assists, tallying his first 20-point season. Harrison also played a career-high 37 games for the Raiders as a senior, and closed out his Colgate career on a six-game point streak with two goals and four assists.

Harrison joins former Raider Kevin Lough on the Thunder’s squad.

Senior defenseman Brett Corkey signed an amateur tryout contract with the ECHL’s Wheeling Nailers.

Corkey was a finalist for the ECAC’s best defenseman award, blocking 60 shots in 22 league games this season.

Corkey’s total of blocked shots in league play was the best in league history.

Corkey also scored a career-high five goals and 12 assists to go along with a total of 97 blocked shots.

Jake Kulevich was the first Raider to sign an ATO on Thursday as he signed with AHL’s Manitoba Moose.
