Red Deer Rebels: Official twitter feed reports New York has signed 2011 draft pick, John Persson to an entry level contract.

Red Deer Advocate has also linked to this information as the teams primary coverage.

NYIFC Comments:
Persson was signed in March to a Bridgeport ATO contract, participated in their playoffs, and played very well.

Signing him to an ELC was the next step for him to make a full time AHL/NHL jump, but it was not necessary until 5/31/2013.
