Veteran junior defenceman Shane Snow will suit up for the St. Charles Spirit of the new Canadian International Hockey League this season.
St. Charles coach-general manager Scott Ginson told HockeyNewsNorth.com that Snow, a 5-foot-11, 190 pound, 1995 birth-year defenceman who has played in the Northern Ontario Jr. Hockey League with the Blind River Beavers and Soo Thunderbirds, has signed with the CIHL Spirit.
Snow, who has already played three seasons of junior, is back in his hometown of Sudbury to attend school after spending the 2013-2014 season in the Soo, where he was a top defenceman for the NOJHL Thunderbirds.
Snow, who first played in the NOJHL as a 16-year old with Blind River in 2011-2012, brings considerable skill and experience to St. Charles and the CIHL.
To be sure, Ginson said he and the Spirit are “ecstatic” to have acquired the services of the likeable Snow, who besides being a high-end player, is a character individual.
