Sarnia, ON. – Sarnia Sting General Manager Dylan Seca announced this afternoon that the Hockey Club has acquired 18-year-old left-shooting Defenceman Chandler Romeo from the Hamilton Bulldogs in exchange for a 2022 2nd round pick and a 2023 3rd round pick.
The Cambridge, Ontario native has tallied a goal and 8 assists through his first 28 games in the Ontario Hockey League, all of which were played with the Hamilton Bulldogs this season. The 6’5” blueliner was selected by the Ottawa Senators in the 7th round of the 2021 NHL Entry Draft last spring.
On the addition of Romeo, Seca comments:
“Chandler is a player we have targeted since his draft year. He has great presence and range and skates extremely well. He is a competitive player who’s motivated and has elite character. We see tremendous upside to Chandler’s game and are thrilled to welcome him as well as the Romeo family to Sarnia.”
