Spirit catches Lincoln Moore

May 26, 2022

Saginaw Spirit has wasted little time in signing Garden River First Nation product Lincoln Moore to an Ontario Hockey League standard player contract.

The hulking forward, who starred with the Soo Jr. Greyhounds of the Great North Under 18 Hockey League the past two seasons, was taken by Saginaw with the first overall pick at the recent 2022 OHL under-18 supplemental draft.

“Moore is a player who possesses size, strength, skill, and finish. Coming off an extremely impressive season with the Soo Jr. Greyhounds U18, we feel he will be able to make a strong contribution to our team, both on and off the ice,” relayed Saginaw general manager Dave Drinkill. “With Lincoln being a late 2005 birthday, there is plenty of room for his game to blossom in the coming seasons.”

Moore had 37 points in 24 games this season for the U18 Greyhounds in 2021-2022, leading them in scoring and being named the league’s most valuable player. He was also part of the Ontario team that won the Canadian National Aboriginal Hockey Championships earlier this month.

“It’s truly an honor to be selected by a great organization like the Saginaw Spirit,” said Moore. “I want to thank everyone in the organization for believing and trusting in me. There is a lot ahead in my future, but I’m ready to get down to business and be a part of a special group.”
