Sarnia Sting General Manager Dylan Seca announced this morning that the Hockey Club has acquired the rights to defenceman Mitch Young from the Owen Sound Attack in exchange for a conditional 12th round pick in the 2023 Ontario Hockey League (OHL) Priority Selection.
Standing at 6’1, 171 lbs, Young spent the 2021-22 season split between the Waterloo Wolves U18 AAA team and the Kitchener-Waterloo Siskins of the Greater Ontario Junior Hockey League (GOJHL). The right shooting Elmira, Ontario native tallied a goal and 7 assists through 15 games with the Wolves, in addition to 8 goals and 23 assists through 35 games played with the Siskins.
On the acquisition of Young’s signing rights, Seca comments:
“Our scouting staff liked Mitch’s skill and upside. We believe he has the chance to be a very good OHL player and will monitor his progress over the coming weeks.”
The Sarnia Sting are set to close out the 2022-23 preseason next week with a home-and-home battle against the Windsor Spitfires. Tickets for Saturday night’s 7:05pm matchup with the Spitfires are available to purchase through sarniasting.com and the Box Office.
