In season 2020/21 he played with three clubs in Utah Grizzlies, Indy Fuel and Tulsa Oilers.
Head coach Todd Dutiaume said: “Michael is going to provide a solid offensive punch for the squad. I spoke to him this week and he is thrilled to be part of the club and excited to get here.
“It is important that, moving on from previous seasons, we have had guys that are reliable offensively and Michael will fall into this category and be relied on heavily in all offensive situations.”
