The 25-year-old had 20 points (eight goals, 12 assists) with the Stingrays and five points (three goals, two assists) in 35 games with Lake Erie.
During his rookie season in 2014-15, DeBlois played in 59 games with the Rays, scoring 45 points (21 goals, 24 assists). He also appeared in 27 playoff contests, accounting for 29 points (11 goals, 18 assists).
Before turning pro, the forward played four seasons at the University of Michigan from 2010-2014 and appeared in 141 games while registering 61 points (24 goals, 37 points).
Before his time at school, DeBlois played prep school hockey at The Hotchkiss School in Connecticut and spent one year in the United States Hockey League (USHL) with the Cedar Rapids RoughRiders during the 2009-10 season.
