Powassan Voodoos of the Northern Ontario Jr. Hockey League have signed rookie forward Elliott Haigh from the Oshawa Generals under 18 program.
“Elliott is a strong two-way forward with a fantastic work ethic and high compete level,” relayed Voodoos vice president of hockey operations Mike Mackley.
“He thinks the game at a high level and carries himself like a veteran player despite his age and should be able to make a strong impact early on. He’s very tough to beat in the face-off circle and thrives as a penalty killer,” Mackley added of Haigh, who has a 2004 birth date.
Haigh is looking forward to the opportunity with the Voodoos.
“I chose to play for Powassan this upcoming season because it’s a great organization, with a successful past and awesome fans,” said Haigh. “I also believe it’s the right destination for me to continue to grow and develop as a hockey player.”
