The Quad City Mallards have signed forward Berkley Scott, the Mallards announced today. The Mallards also announced forward Antti Pusa has been placed on 21-day injured reserve.
Scott, 24, joins the Mallards after playing 39 games this season for the Southern Professional Hockey League’s Knoxville Ice Bears. The 6’ 3”, 210-pound Anoka, Minnesota, native ranks third in the SPHL in goals (18) and is tied for seventh in points (37).
Now in his fourth professional season, Scott has scored 14 goals and totaled 25 points in 63 career ECHL games with three different clubs.
Scott notched two goals and five assists in 23 ECHL games last year with the Utah Grizzlies and San Francisco Bulls. He also scored ten goals and totaled 20 points in 23 games with Knoxville last season.
In 2012-13, Scott scored a dozen goals and recorded 17 points in 39 games with Utah. The same season saw him score 13 times and produce 31 points in 27 games with the Ice Bears.
Scott broke into pro hockey with Knoxville in 2011-12. He scored nine goals and collected 30 points in 53 SPHL games as a rookie and also played his first ECHL game for the Cincinnati Cyclones.
Before turning pro Scott spent two seasons in the junior ranks with the North American Hockey League’s Alaska Avalanche and Coulee Region Chill.
