Seasoned skater Liam Doyle is on the move in a Northern Ontario Jr. Hockey League future considerations transaction, Hockey News North has confirmed.
Sudbury Cubs have obtained the 19-year old forward from the Hearst Lumberjacks. In 36 games with Hearst over last season and so far in this one, Doyle netted two goals, 10 assists, 12 points in 36 games.
“Liam is a solid two-way player that brings speed, energy and the ability to provide increased offensive depth to our lineup,” relayed Sudbury general manager Jeff Forsyth. “Liam had solid offensive numbers in his last season with the Pembroke Lumber Kings U18 team where he recorded 26 points in 44 games. Liam recognizes the opportunity that awaits him here in Sudbury and he is looking forward to helping us offensively while maintaining his responsible two-way game. We are also fortunate to add a player of Liam’s character to our dressing room.”
As for Doyle, he is looking forward to a fresh start in Sudbury.
“I am thrilled to be part of the Cubs organization and looking forward to coming back in January,” Doyle began. “Sudbury has some great players on its roster and I look forward to helping the Cubs contend for a league championship this season and next. I’m looking forward to having a fresh start with the Cubs in 2022 and contributing to the team’s success any way that I can.”
