PROVIDENCE, R.I. -
Several former Providence College men's ice hockey players have signed professional contracts this summer, led by Mark Fayne '10, who signed with the National Hockey League's Edmonton Oilers.

Army (North Kingstown, R.I.) resigned with the ECHL's Wheeling Nailers. He had a short stint with the Nailers after Providence's NCAA Tournament run came to an end last season, tallying three goals and an assist for four points in four games with Wheeling. Army ended his Friar career as the program's all-time leader in consecutive games played (149). He scored 38 goals and added 38 assists for 76 points.
Hart signed his first professional contract with the Florida Everblades. A co-captain as a senior, Hart finished his Friar career with eight goals and 26 assists for 34 points in 143 games.
Shamanski signed with the Elmira Jackals. A four-time Hockey East All-Academic team member, he played 130-consecutive games to end his Friar career. All told, he appeared in 141 games for the Friars, totaling 11 goals and 25 assists for 36 points. As a junior, Shamanski was selected to the All-Hockey East Honorable Mention Team. After the 2013-14 season, Shamanski made his pro debut by skating in three games with the Fort Wayne Komets (ECHL).
Cody Wild '08 signed for the GMB Nottingham Panthers of England's Elite Ice Hockey League (EIHL). Wild spent the 2013-14 season with the Orlando Solar Bears of the ECHL.
