Timmins Rock of the Northern Ontario Jr. Hockey League has added a fourth key member from the reigning Superior International Jr. Hockey League champion Red Lake Miners via trade, Hockey News North has confirmed.
This time, it is 5-foot-9, 160 pound forward Lucas Piekarczyk who is headed from Red Lake to Timmins. Piekarczyk, who has a 2002 birth date, netted 14 goals, 12 assists, 26 points in just 30 regular season games for Red Lake in 2021-2022 and added two assists in seven playoff outings.
He joins three former Red Lake teammates in Timmins — defenseman Kenyon Nyman and forwards Brady Harroun and Ethan Pool.
• The 6-foot-3, 190 pound Nyman was a prolific points producer for Red Lake from his blue line post in ’21-22. The 2002 birth year defender tallied four goals, 32 assists, 36 points in 37 regular season games and then added one goal, five assists, six points in 11 playoff outings as Red Lake upended the Dryden Ice Dogs and Kam River Fighting Walleye en route to winning the SIJHL championship.
• The 6 foot, 190 pound Harroun finished third on the regular season scoring chart for Red Lake with 25 goals, 26 assists, 51 points in 37 games in ’21-22. He then added five goals, four assists, nine points in 12 playoff outings for the Miners. Harroun, who has a 2002 birth date, was particularly effective for Red Lake in the SIJHL championship series against Kam River as he sparked the Miners to glory with five goals, two assists, seven points in the six-game triumph and was, it says here, their best player.
• The 5 foot 10, 185 pound Pool netted 10 goals, 16 assists, 26 points in 32 regular season games for Red Lake in 2021-2022 while utilizing his speed as a shutdown forward. He then appeared in seven playoff games for the champion Miners and posted two goals, two assists, four points. Pool also has a 2002 birth date.
