The Seaforth Generals have announced the signing of two players from Michigan in forwards Parker Gee and Cam Hofstetter.

Gee, a 5-foot-9, 170-pound center, will fill a big role for the Gens this coming season. The Crystal, Mich., native is entering his last year of junior eligibility and is looking to turn some heads. Last season, Gee recorded 16 goals and 24 assists for 40 points in 40 games with the London Lakers of the GMHL. 

In 2016-17, Gee suited up for the Kalkaska Rhinos of the USPHL.

“Parker is a workhorse, in the gym, at practice and in game situations," said Seaforth GM T.J. Runhart. "We will rely on his work ethic to help push players to be better overall everyday. He’s looking to have a good year as a player and a teammate and we are excited he chose to join the Generals." 

Hofstetter, a Traverse City product, goes 5-foot-7 and 145 pounds. The 20-year-old suited up in 11 games for the Generals at the end of last season, registering four assists.

He missed the first 30 games of last year because of an injury. In ‘16-17, Hofstetter dressed for 34 games with the Rhinos.

“This is going to be a big year for 'Hoffy,'" said Runhart. "He’s in top physical condition and has that fire back in his eyes to push his teammates to compete this season. Any time we have a 20-year-old, we naturally lean on them for some leadership and Cam is no expection. He wants this team to excel as a whole."
