22-year-old Jim Baxter who scored 11 goals, 29 assists for 40 points and 28 penalty minutes last season with Mississippi and Augusta inked a new deal with the Sea Wolves on Tuesday.
Baxter, a native of Brantford, Ontario was acquired by the Sea Wolves following a trade that sent Jeff Bes to Augusta on December 11, 2001. In 29 games with the Sea Wolves Baxter netted 7 goals and 22 assists for 29 points.
