The Halifax Hurricanes have signed former NBL Canada MVP Gabe Freeman.

And his arrival could be the spark the 0-2 Hurricanes need.

“Gabe is a proven veteran in our league. He’ll provide solid scoring, rebounding and will help anchor our defence,” Hurricanes head coach Mike Leslie said in a news release. “We’re really pleased to have the opportunity to have Gabe in Halifax as he will bring veteran experience and leadership to our Hurricanes team.”

Later on Tuesday, the Hurricanes announced that forward Rhamel Brown has re-signed with the club.

The six-foot-seven forward from Brooklyn, N.Y., was a defensive dynamo during Halifax's playoff run to the NBL Canada final. Brown led the league in blocks (100) during his first season with the Hurricanes and was third in rebounding (440) and was named to the league’s all-defensive team.

Halifax has dropped its first two games of the season, each to the Moncton Magic.

Enter the 33-year-old Freeman. A six-foot-six forward, he’s the league’s all-time leading rebounder. In 2012, he led the London Lightning to the NBL Canada championship in the league’s inaugural season and earned both the regular season and playoff MVP awards.

He has played five seasons in the NBL Canada, split between London and Saint John. Last season with the Riptide, Freeman averaged 20.5 points, 9.3 rebounds and 34 minutes in 21 games before he left Saint John for Baghdad and a team in Iraq’s top professional league.

Freeman signed with the St. John’s Edge in August but was released on Friday, just two days before their season opener.

The Hurricanes return to action Thursday night when they entertain Saint John at Scotiabank Centre.
