Glads Sign Former NHLer Jared Ross

DULUTH, Ga. – The Atlanta Gladiators announced on Wednesday that they have signed forward Jared Ross to a standard professional contract.

Ross, 36, comes out of retirement to help the Gladiators who are riddled with injuries and call-ups. The native of Huntsville, AL played 13 NHL games for the Philadelphia Flyers during his 11-year pro career. The 5-foot-9, 175-pound forward played one game for the Gwinnett Gladiators at the start of his rookie season in 2005-06 before being called up to the AHL and went on to become one of 21 players to play for the Gladiators and then move on to play in the NHL. The undrafted forward out of the University of Alabama-Huntsville skated in 394 AHL games and posted 298 points (100g, 198a) for Chicago, Philadelphia (Phantoms) and Adirondack. Ross last played in 2015-16 in the DEL, the top league in Germany, for ERC Ingolstadt.

The 16th season of Atlanta Gladiators hockey continues at the Infinite Energy Arena Wednesday, December 19th, against the Greenville Swamp Rabbits at 7:35 PM. For ticket information, visit the official team website at www.atlantagladiators.com or call the main office line at 770-497-5100.

The Gladiators are members of the ECHL, the nation’s premier "AA" hockey league. All home games are played at the 9,119-seat Infinite Energy Arena, located just off I-85 on Sugarloaf Parkway in Duluth – where parking is always free. The Gladiators have established an unrivaled commitment to excellence, maintaining a distinctive reputation for affordable and family-friendly sports entertainment and are consistently ranked as one of the top “Things To Do” in the Atlanta area and across the North Georgia region.
