From one major junior league to another.
Defenceman Chad Duchesne is poised to leave the United States Hockey League for the Ontario Hockey League.
Kingston Frontenacs have obtained the OHL rights to the 1995 birth-year defender from the Mississauga Steelheads for a conditional sixth-round draft pick in 2016.
Duchesne played for Sioux Falls Stampede of the USHL in 2013-2014 and had 6 goals, 19 assists, 25 points in 51 games.
Duchesne was selected by Mississauga at the 2011 OHL draft.
“Chad will bring much-needed experience to our blueline, we are glad we can add a quality defenseman who is also a local product,” Kingston general manager Doug Gilmour said of Duchesne.
