The season prior, Assadpour led the ignition’s rookie class with 15 points in 21 regular season games. Assadpour has signed a two year contract.
“Gibson is lightening quick with a knack for finding the back of the net, and Vahid is as steady as they come and a fierce competitor,” said head coach, Kim Roentved.
