Harrington logged a +1 rating and four shots on goal in two appearances during the Monsters’ season-opening series at The Q, a 2-1 home win over the Rockford IceHogs on Friday and a 3-1 victory over Rockford on Saturday.

A 6’2”, 219 lb. left-handed blue-liner from Kingston, ON, Harrington registered 0-1-1 with eight penalty minutes in 25 NHL appearances for the Pittsburgh Penguins and Toronto Maple Leafs spanning parts of the past two seasons.
