GREENVILLE, S.C.  The Greenville Swamp Rabbits have signed forward Jake Slaker and defenseman Luke Martin to a Standard Player Contract for the 2020-21 season. Both players join the Upstate after concluding their collegiate careers at Michigan.

Slaker, 24, registered 104 points (47 goals, 57 assists) in 143 career games with Michigan from 2016-2020. An alternate captain during his senior campaign, the San Diego, California native led his team in scoring with a career-best 14 goals and added 17 helpers in 2019-20. Slaker attended the Vegas Golden Knights Development Camp in 2017 and 2018.  

Martin, 22, armed the blueline at Michigan from 2016-2020 and served as an alternate captain in his 2019-20 senior season.
