With the departures of Kyle Tarini and Andrew Clouthier, Spits GM Warren Rychel wasted no time in filling the team’s void up front.
Rychel announced today the Spitfires have acquired overage winger Jeff Brown from the Oshawa Generals, in exchange for a fourth round draft pick in the 2013 OHL Draft.
“This move solidifies our squad; Brown is a gritty and experienced player who will provide our club with scoring, toughness and leadership,” Rychel said. “He’s a great addition to our team for the rest of the season and also for our playoff run. Brown is a tough player to play against and will become a fan favourite here in Windsor.”
The 20-year-old Toronto native is 6’1″ and 202 pounds. He put up 92 points and 216 penatly minutes in 151 games over the last two-and-a-half seasons with Oshawa, including seven goals, nine assists and 56 penalty minutes in 25 games this year.
Brown will be in the lineup this afternoon versus Erie and will wear #11.
