WINDSOR, CO. – The Colorado Eagles, proud AHL affiliate of the Colorado Avalanche, have announced that the team has signed AHL agreements with forwards Cole Ully and Tim McGauley, as well as goaltender Kevin Carr. Ully has 121 games of AHL experience with the Texas Stars, collecting 20 goals and 26 points, while McGauley appeared in 14 AHL games with the Hershey Bears, notching three points during the 2017-18 season. Carr has yet to play in the American Hockey league, but has posted a record of 81-71-12 in 174 ECHL contests, registering a 2.70 goals-against average and a .909 save-percentage.
In addition to his time in the AHL, Ully has also amassed 46 points in 45 ECHL games with the Idaho Steelheads, including 19 goals in 39 games during the 2017-18 season. Prior to joining the pro game, the Calgary, Alberta native notched 95 goals and 142 assists in 256 contests with the Kamloops Blazers of the WHL. During that time, the 5th round pick of the Dallas Stars posted back-to-back seasons with 30+ goals and was named to the WHL West First All-Star Team during the 2014-15 campaign.
McGauley is coming off his second professional season, having also appeared in 87 ECHL games with the South Carolina Stingrays, netting 17 goals and 36 assists. The 22 year-old was signed to a three-year deal with the Washington Capitals in 2015 while in the midst of a highly-successful career with the Brandon Wheat Kings of the WHL. In five seasons with the Wheat Kings, McGauley would register 102 goals and 157 assists in 276 games, including a 2014-15 season that would see him post 42 goals and 63 assists. Those numbers would earn McGauley Eastern Conference Player of the Year honors and land him a spot as a finalist for the Four Broncos Memorial Trophy, awarded to the WHL’s top player. His major-junior career would culminate in 2015-16 when he helped lead Brandon to a WHL Championship.
Carr returns to North America after finishing the 2017-18 season with Medvescak Zagreb in the EBEL where he appeared in 10 contests. The Unionville, Ontario native began his pro career with the Tulsa Oilers and Alaska Aces of the ECHL, where he would start 45 or more games in each of his first three seasons. He began the 2017-18 campaign with the Eagles ECHL affiliate, the Utah Grizzlies. In 29 games with the Grizzlies, the 28 year-old went 12-11-3 with a 2.71 GAA and a .909 save-percentage. Carr also spent four seasons at the collegiate level at Buffalo State College where he would earn All-Conference honors in three of his four seasons with the Bengals.
