The Blues have today secured the signature of former North Melbourne player Aaron Mullett, on the first day of the AFL Delisted Free Agency Period.

The 25-year-old utility arrives at Ikon Park after 85 senior games with the Kangaroos.

Originally taken by North Melbourne in the 2011 Rookie Draft, Mullett made his debut in Round 22 against Fremantle impressing early with 17 disposals. In 2017, the defender averaged a career-best 20 possessions a game, leading the side in rebound 50s and second for running bounces.

GM List Management and Strategy Stephen Silvagni said Mullett was a strong addition to the Blues’ playing list.

“We’re very pleased to give Aaron another opportunity at AFL level, one we know he will fully embrace,” Silvagni said.

“An impressive contributor for North Melbourne’s backline, Aaron showed his talents as an effective rebounding defender. However recently, he has also been pushing through the middle so we see some exciting versatility there.

“Importantly for our young group, Aaron provides valuable experience after seven seasons at senior level. With a strong pre-season campaign, we’re confident Aaron will be in a position to cement a regular spot in our senior side in 2018.

“After another 13 list changes following the end of the 2017 season, our list is continuing to take shape and we’re excited about Aaron joining the ranks under coach Brendon Bolton and his team.”

Mullett will join the full playing group at the Club when they commence the pre-season campaign on Monday 13 November.
