Durment (5’10/180) spent the 2014-15 season with the Minnesota Magicians in the NAHL, where he recorded 37 points in 56 games played. Overall in his NAHL career, Durment recorded 78 points in 115 career games.
“We’re really excited for Kane. We feel St. Thomas is getting one of the best natural goal scorers from the NAHL. Kane has a bright future at St. Thomas,” said Blizzard head coach Dan Diakawa.
“I’m excited to get my time at St. Thomas started. I love the area and know a few incoming players that will make it a comfortable transition. I want to thank my parents for their support,” stated Durment.
