DeFazio, you might recall, played two regular season games with the WBS Penguins back in early April, posting no points and an even rating. Wheeling Nailers beat writer Shawn Rine had this to say (on Twitter) after hearing the news of DeFazio's signing:
Congrats to @BDDeFazio (Brandon DeFazio) on AHL deal with WBS. All you need to know about his compete level: played entire playoffs with a ripped up knee. Great guy in room, too. #winner

All in all, both guys will likely begin the season in the ECHL with the Wheeling Nailers.
