Ancaster, Cambridge and Kitchener Make Moves – by C. Scott Holland
In a bid to secure the 8th or 7th playoff spot the Cambridge Winterhawks have made some roster changes while the Ancaster Avalanche have picked up an experienced OHL player.
The Winterhawks were busy on Thursday and Friday as they sent forward Cole Cummings to the Ayr Centennial (Jr. C) and picked up Yianni Skropolis from Ayr. Cummings, 5′ 11″ is a Cambridge native, had played in 34 games this season and had four goals and eight assists for the Winterhawks while Skropolis, an 18 year-old forward, had appeared in 28 contests with Ayr recording nine goals and five assists.
In a swap of players, Cambridge sent Zach Hedley, a 20 year-old Waterloo resident, to the Kitchener Dutchmen and getting 17 year-old defenseman Kyle Somani. The 6′ sophomore Hedley had played in 34 contests and tallied six gaols while assisting on 10 others. The 6′ 3″ Somani had struggled in 22 games and recorded a single assist.
Meanwhile, the Ancaster Avalanche had added Reilly Webb from the OHL Hamilton Bulldogs. The 16 year-old Stoney Creek defenseman is 6′ 3″ and 190 lbs. He had played in just seven games for the Bulldogs.
The GOJHL wish these players well in their hockey careers with their new teams.
