CAMBRIDGE, Mass. –
Senior forward and captain Jake Horton signed a professional contract with the Manchester Monarchs (ECHL), the club announced on Saturday. Horton made his professional debut last night with the Monarchs.

Horton, who never missed a game in his four seasons at Harvard, set a program record for games played over his four-year career with the Crimson. Horton played in 140 games, first all surpassing the previous Harvard record of 138 games played set by Tom Cavanagh '05.
