Report: Freibergs, Perrier both leave Bowling Green program

According to a report by TVNet in Latvia, the Winnipeg Jets have signed Bowling Green defenseman Ralfs Freibergs to an American Hockey League contract with the St. John’s IceCaps.

The 2013-14 season was Freibergs’ first full season at Bowling Green as he was limited to just eight games in 2012-13 as he served a suspension for having played professionally in Latvia as a teenager. He has also been suspended by the International Ice Hockey Federation after testing positive for a banned substance while playing for Latvia at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.

Last season with BGSU, Freibergs tallied three goals (two on the power play) and 19 assists for 22 points in 37 games for the Falcons.

In addition, senior-to-be forward Marcus Perrier announced on Twitter that he is leaving Bowling Green.

Perrier posted two goals and 10 points in 35 games during the 2013-14 season.
