A 25-year-old forward from Saskatchewan, Moriarty appeared in two playoff games for the IceMen in 2012 after finishing his tenure with the Crimson.

At Harvard, the 5-foot-9 winger scored 16 goals and added 25 assists for 41 points in 110 contests. He was an assistant captain for the Crimson during the 2011-12 season.

Prior to his collegiate career, he spent three years in the SJHL with the Melville Millionaires and one season with the BCHL’s Alberni Valley Bulldogs.

“Dan joined us late in the season and showed us some real positive signs through his style of play,” said Rich Kromm, the GM and head coach of the IceMen. “He impressed us with his all-out physical play in providing our team lots of energy. He, too, plays with a lot of character and has shown at an early stage that he understands his role.”

Located in Indiana, the IceMen were previously the Muskegon Lumberjacks and Muskegon Fury.

In May 2012, they were formally accepted into the ECHL after being a member of the Central Hockey for the 2010-11 and 2011-12 seasons.
