The Idaho Steelheads announced that the team has agreed to terms with defenseman Cody Corbett on an ECHL contract for this season.  Corbett is preparing for his fourth professional season.

Corbett, 23, played parts of last season in the ECHL and in the American Hockey League, finishing the season with the South Carolina Stingrays.  The Lakeland, Minnesota native was a Colorado Avalanche prospect at the start of last season, playing 23 games in AHL San Antonio and seven with the Colorado Eagles.

“I couldn’t be more excited to get things going with what I think is going to be an awesome team,” said Corbett.

Corbett has played in 145 regular-season games over his first three pro seasons.

“Cody is a very heads-up, mobile defenseman who has had success at our level, both in the regular season and in the playoffs,” said Head Coach Neil Graham.

Corbett is the third Steelheads defenseman to join this year's roster and the first newcomer. Corbin Baldwin and Joe Faust agreed to terms earlier this month.
