June 1, 2015

Kalas, a 1997 birth year from Grayslake, IL, showed tremendous growth in his only season of junior hockey. In 24 games he recorded 8 goals and 7 assists with Chicago.
"Dane is a high motor player, very explosive skating ability. He can finish offensively and plays with a nasty side. All are things we need in our lineup this fall. Kalas will translate nicely to the college game and into our style of play here at Lewis. We look forward to big things from the young man as he progresses during his career as a Flyer," stated Head Coach Tim Picco
