St. Charles Spirit of the new Canadian International Hockey League has signed four new players, including three former members of the Abitibi Eskimos of the Northern Ontario Jr. Hockey League.
St. Charles coach-general manager Scott Ginson told HockeyNewsNorth.com that the Spirit has added a trio of 1995 birth-year veterans who previously played in the NOJHL with Abitibi — centre Marc Dube, defenceman Bryce Robert and goalie Sylvain Miron.
Notably, all three players are from Iroquois Falls, which is home to the NOJHL Eskimos.
Ginson has also confirmed that the Spirit has signed 1994 birth-year forward Brady Constant from the Melville Millionaires of the Saskatchewan Jr. Hockey League.
Constant hails from The Pas, Manitoba.
In explaining the addition of the four new players, Ginson noted that “we needed to add depth in some areas and we feel that these four signings do exactly that.”
St. Charles opens the inaugural, 2014-2015 CIHL regular season this Saturday night with a home game against the nearby Sudbury Royals.
