Rick Forney on Andrew Sohn: I’m really pleased to announce the return of both Andrew and Jordan (Ebert). Both players were very important pieces in our championship run. Andrew is coming off a fantastic season that saw him named to the Postseason All-Star Team. He has a dynamic offensive skill set, and I’m hoping he can repeat his success.
