Lake Superior State senior defenseman Simon Gysbers has signed a try-out contract with the Toronto Marlies of the American Hockey League.
Gysbers, 22, of Richmond Hill, Ont., totaled 19 goals and 48 assists during 155 collegiate games.
He was the Lakers' top-scoring defenseman this season with 6-9--15 totals. The 6-foot-4, 200-pounder was named LSSU's Outstanding Defenseman in 2007-08 and 2008-09 and the team's Outstanding Freshman in 2006-07.
The Marlies travel to Chicago Friday to play the Wolves, who are the AHL affiliate of the Atlanta Thrashers.
