67's make moves
The Ottawa 67’s have signed a draft pick and made a trade.
Ryan Van Stralen, a 6-foot-3, 210-pound left winger from Prescott, a 67’s selection in the 2009 OHL draft, will join the team. He was named the CCHL’s most improved player this past season, with 24 goals and 28 assists in 60 games for the Smiths Falls Bears.
“Ryan is a big, strong power forward who through hard work and determination has become a very good player,” said 67’s GM Brian Kilrea.
Ottawa acquired import player Michal Cajkovsky from the Kingston Frontenacs for a third-round selection in the 2013 OHL draft. Cajkovsky, a 6-foot-3, 208-pound defenceman from Slovakia, had four goals and 11 assists in 67 games for the Frontenacs.
“Michal is a big stay-at-home defenceman that will complement our group of returning defenceman well,” said 67’s coach Chris Byrne. “He played in all situations in his first season in the OHL last year.”
The 67’s hit the ice this weekend for their Prospects Camp at Ottawa University. Camp details can be found at www.ottawa67s.com.
