Looking to add an experienced defenseman, Soo Eagles of the Northern Ontario Jr. Hockey League have acquired Sam Holy from the Pembroke Lumber Kings of the Central Canada Hockey League.
Hailing from Chicago, Illinois and with a 2001 birth date, Holy has size at 6-foot-5, 215 pounds.
“He will bring leadership and strength to our team,” Eagles general manager Bruno Bragagnolo told Hockey News North. “Sam is a Chicago kid and I have known of him for a long time. This is a good pick up for us.”
A product of the Chicago Mission and Team Illinois minor hockey programs, Holy’s junior hockey experience includes 56 CCHL games with Pembroke.
