Skilled Defenceman a 2nd Round pick in 2015
General Manager Warren Rychel is pleased to announce Kyle Auger has joined the Spitfires by agreeing to a standard OHL Player & Education Package.
Auger, 16, a native of Thunder Bay, Ontario, was taken in the 2nd Round of April’s Ontario Hockey League Priority Selection (#39 overall) after an outstanding season with the Thunder Bay Kings Minor Midgets.
The 5’9, 175-pound defenceman put up 15 goals and 33 assists in 48 games in 2014-15.
“Kyle is a smart, two-way player that uses his teammates well,” Rychel said. “He’s a thinker on the ice. He can shoot. He players a very physical game for his size. He’s also a very strong student and a well-rounded kid we think has a bright future.”
Auger is currently competing at the OHL Gold Cup in Kitchener, along with fellow Spitfire prospects Gabe Vilardi, Mike DiPietro, Thomas Stevenson and Devlin Shanahan.
Auger and 29 other draftees, returning players and free agent invites will be in Windsor to take part in our 2015 Mini-Camp, Friday, May 15th and Saturday, May 16th, at the WFCU Centre.
The camp is open to the public.
